    • Synopsis
    • The film chronicles the birth of the Romani band Lomnické Čháve. In a poor settlement in eastern Slovakia, a group of Romani boys have a great dream: to play their music on a big stage and show the “gadjo” (i.e. non-Romani people) that they too have talent. They want to get out of the ghetto of poverty, exclusion and begin living life with dignity, to fully become part of society. We follow their journey in pursuit of this dream, from Kosice to Bratislava, all the way to a prestigious international music festival where they will have the chance to put their musical abilities on full display. How will they use their once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? A film about the road to success, filled with Romani music, culture and kind humour. A loose sequel to the documentary “All My Children” (2013) that moved audiences in many countries.
