This documentary follows several wandering bands of Gypsy musicians and dancers as they travel throughout Europe and parts of Asia. Unlike most documentaries, this one has no narration, preferring to let the images and the music speak for themselves. Starting in India, the film follows these bands through Egypt, Turkey, Romania, Germany and France and ends up in Spain. As they travel deeper in Europe -- especially into Romania and Germany, traditionally countries that are most hostile to Gypsies -- their music turns from light, romantic tunes into dark, bitter political dirges
