A film series telling the story of people whose work involves physical danger.

Harold Krier earns a precarious living flying rickety biplanes for travelling air circuses. The wind whistles as Krier loops the loop, hedge-hops, dog-fights, or narrowly misses a mid-air collision, but his best trick is picking up a piece of gauze with his wing tip while flying upside down ten feet above the ground.
