In a small valley there was a big mountain. On its summit, in a small village, lived Mariedl. She was so big, so gigantic, that going out of the house was a torment: laughter, teasing, eye-rolling were the order of the day.
So, the day a little mustachioed man appeared and asked her to join his circus, Mariedl followed him. He would take her to all the cities of Europe and she would be the centrepiece of his show!
