Journey into the world of the Roma - a people who through the ages have been both romanticized and vilified as "Gypsies" and who have endured centuries of intolerance and persecution. Visiting 11 countries and interviewing dozens of Roma artists, historians, musicians and Holocaust survivors, this revealing film documents their culturally rich but often difficult lives, taking us from ancient times to the little-known story of Roma genocide at the hands of Nazis. As we watch the incredible story of the Roma unfold, both the people and their history come to life through the interplay of their evocative music and poetry, interwoven with true stories told by the survivors of the camps.
