This feature documentary, directed and produced by Jasmine Dellal, juxtaposes the dazzling musical world of the Roma with the real world in which they live. A musical journey from Rajasthan to Macedonia to Spain, we see international performers such as Taraf de Haidouks, Maharaja, Antonio el Pipa & Esma Redzepova portrayed in the real life tales of their home life and social background, then together on their U.S. tour of the Gypsy Caravan show.
