    • Synopsis
    • What are the chances that Roma activist Vlado Sendrei and his election team can succeed in a society of “whites”? Despite expert help from an American foundation, one experiences an unbelievably lively campaign, tragicomical moments, and a glimpse into Roma ghettoes at the edge of society. Vlado's wife Jana openly claims her husband's activities are harmful to his family and Roma values, increasing tensions between them. The Big Day – election day – turns original emotions on their head. The new film by Jaro Vojtek renders a world of deception, and it's only the Gypsy fortune-teller who tells the truth!
