They "flew" on thin wires high above the ground. They found fame for their incredible daring and for the tragedies that took their lives. The Flying Wallendas were one of the most popular and storied circus acts of the 20th century. In courting death and occasionally succumbing to it they thrilled audiences worldwide. But the fatal fall of family patriarch Karl Wallenda from 120 feet above a Puerto Rican street in 1978 effectively ended their reign as the monarchs of the high wire. THE FLYING WALLENDAS uses performance footage and home movies shot over several decades to tell the story of this legendary family. Relive some of the most daring stunts of all time, and explore the tragedies that claimed the lives of seven of the Wallendas. Karl's daughters, half-brother and adopted son tell family stories of their greatest stunts and darkest moments, and reveal how the Wallendas came to be legends of the high wire. And circus historian LaVahn G. Hoh and Wallenda biographer Ron Morris explore the family's lasting legacy. BIOGRAPHY steps out over the brink to tell the high-wire story of a family that carved their name in circus lore.
