Canio and his wife Nedda lead a band of traveling carnival players in late 19th-Century Southern Italy. They are the live, in-person social media of the day, greeted with wild cheers wherever they go. On the stage, Canio plays the clown, but beneath his makeup boils a troubled and jealous soul. When Canio suspects his wife has taken a lover, he explodes during a performance and, in full view of a stunned audience, stops at nothing to learn the truth. The show and reality become one, with tragic, shocking results.
