This video begins by examining the roots of Gypsy culture within India before progressing in Eastern Europe. Viewers get an insider's view of Gypsy culture, viewing along the way the bear trainers, puppeteers, and musicians that have entertained audiences for generations. More than a simple music documentary, this film offers poignant commentary on the past of these people, and what might be their future in a post-communist world.
