JoJo in the Stars plays out the heart-wrenching tale of two unlikely lovers: JoJo, a silver-plated trapeze artist, and the nameless hero who worships her. The film is a story of love, self-sacrifice, and jealousy played out against a black and white world that is both nightmarish and hauntingly beautiful.
