    • The locals of a little poor village are picking snails in the graveyard. That is the rst seasonal work of the year. The cemetery is a wet place
      with plenty of snails. Here, in deep poverty lives the 13-year-old Robbie who at this moment doesn’t know that one day he will be the
      rst gypsy president of the country. Robbie’s mother, Valerie struggles to take care of her 5 children and herself. The rumour has it that
      Robbie’s father has ed to the French Legion leaving behind a signicant debt that the loan shark now demands from the family. The
      threats have become a part of their lives. Valerie seeing no other solution sues the loan shark. There is only one way out of this impossible
      situation-Robbie’s imagination. RobbieCop the impeccable gypsy private detective sneaks into the shelter of the loan shark and with
      a tricky and sly plan he manages to trap the whole gang beside rescuing the captured ,charming dancer, Sandra.
      However, in reality Valerie is sentenced by the court. The family can’t aord the legal fees and nobody dares to help from the village, so
      Valerie goes to prison and her children will soon be sent to an orphanage. There is only one chance Robbie can take, asking more money
      from the loan shark. But it has a price. The boy has to serve. Robbie accepts it. Robert, a top lawyer defends her mother with excellent
      arguments and unveils the corruption lying in the background of the case. The trial becomes a precedent case and riots break out throughout
      the country. The more tragical reality becomes, the more it is projected in his imagination. The now 14-year-old boy gets into a murder
      case, is arrested and sent into prison where he meets his father. Meanwhile, the rst gypsy president is inaugurated. He, who is the only
      hope of the country, wages war against segregation and poverty while receiveing a Nobel Peace Prize as well.
      In the closed, hopeless system of poverty, reproduction is inevitable. This existing problem encounters with the Hollywood dream of
      a beggar turning into a just president in a segregation-free world. The more surreal hope seems to be, the more real life gets.
