Summary
This film explores the position of the Vlach Gypsies in 1980s Hungary. Set in a village outside the town of Gyongyos, near Budapest, the program follows two Gypsy families struggling to maintain their traditions in a modern communist state. Despite the romantic image, Gypsy life is harsh and often brutal. The Gypsies live in semi-slums, and they are forced by law to work, often for very low wages. Some obey the law and work in regular jobs, becoming more like the gazo, or "peasants," the contemptuous Romany term for all Hungarians. Others resist and want the freedom of casual labor - such as trading horses and recycling discarded rubbish - along with the close-knit brotherhood of Gypsy life
