In the 1930's The Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth was known as the best circus in America, a small and tight knit community of performers and animals who were all masters of their craft. When trainee veterinarian Jacob Jankowski finds himself as a passenger on their circus train he soon becomes part of the family. Hired to look after the animals he meets Marlena, a beautiful woman who performs as an equestrian star and her husband August, the head animal trainer; it doesn't take long for Jacob to see there's a sinister side to August's personality.
As Jacob develops friendships with more of the crew and animals - especially Marlena - it becomes apparent that August isn't going to stand for their possible romance. Despite the odds being stacked against the couple, they form a strong bond through the mutual love of an elephant.
Water For Elephants is based on the 2006 book by Sara Gruen which reached #1 New York Times Best Sellers list.
