When his wife suspects Julius Seibold her circus-owning husband of having an affair, he tries to allay her suspicions by suggesting that it is really his young assistant Max who is having a relationship with the woman, and that he is in fact a playboy. This invented lifestyle in turn attracts the Siebold's daughter to Max.
