Roma musicians are the heroes of this documentary film, directed by Robert Lakatos. Usin short, often contrastingly intermittent cuts, this film of folkloric imagination materialises the energy of a Roma musical gruop that wanders throught town and the neighbourhood of its housing settlement. The music is the impetus behind the movement in the film, and following its rythm the film presents the panorama of feelings and experiences of life on the periphery.
