A bookish lion, bored with circus life, refuses to renew his contract. His packing is interrupted by children who offer to help him rehearse his secret ambitions. Using his boxes for sets, the children set the stage for the lion's dreams - heroic self portraits as baseball pitcher, teacher, sea captain, detective, and film star. When each dream dissolves in failure, the lion is persuaded to return to the role he plays best - circus star.
