The strongman, a guest performer comes to the circus. While introducing themselves, Leo accidentally steps on his feet making the strongman run away into his trailer. After failing to make peace several times, the circus decides to lock Leo away in a cage. The strongman calms down, but later he is tormented by guilt. One day, hearing Leo screaming in his cage, he bravely pries away the bars and escapes the lion, hand in hand: a mouse is running around in the cage.
