Cirque des Rêves follows the adventures of Poppy Parker, an ordinary girl who wishes to escape her life for something a little... extraordinary. The sudden arrival of a remarkable circus introduces her to an array of quirky and outlandish performers. For a moment, it appears that all her dreams have come true. But things are not all as they seem...for deep in the heart of the circus, there is a malevolent power waiting for an ordinary girl - like Poppy – to finally set it free.
