Hans (Harry Earles), a circus midget, falls in love with Cleopatra (Olga Baclanova), a beautiful trapeze artist, who in turn loves Hercules (Henry Victor), the strong man. Learning that Hans is to inherit a fortune, Cleopatra decides to marry him and slowly poison him so as to be free for Hercules. Hans's previous lady friend, Frieda (Daisy Earles), and the other circus freaks realise that Hans has been betrayed, and take a terrible joint revenge.
