Journey into the world of the Roma, a people who have been both romanticized & vilified in popular culture, politics and art, and who have endured centuries of intolerance & 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 back to ancient times and forward to the Roma genocide at the hands of Nazis during World War II. As intolerance is on the rise in European politics, this remarkable film reminds us that ethnic minorities all too often fall prey to racism and genocide.
