A documentary film about the attempt of the Gypsy leader to win elections in “white” Slovakia.
Vlado Sendrei, a Romani cultural and sports activist, decides to step out of the borders of his Romani community and candidate in the local elections as the official representative of his people. However, life is not a bed of roses, and Vlado faces surprising stumbling blocks along the way. Despite all the energy invested in the preparations, the Big Day – the Election Day turns original emotions upside down.
