A Czech singer invites a young Roma singer and her family relocate from Slovakia to the Czech Republic so that they may work together and refine the talented young woman's vocal skills, only to find themselves dumbfounded when the entire family disappears without a trace in director Miroslav Janek's mysterious documentary. Upon hearing Vierka Berkyová's extraordinary voice, Ida Kelarová immediately recognizes the young woman's potential for stardom. Though she successfully convinces the girl and her family to come to the Czech Republic, where they are encouraged to adapt new routines and become productive contributors to the family, Kelarová and her family are shocked when Berkyová's entire family seems to vanish into thin air. As a result of the disappearance, what began as a documentary about a promising young singer soon morphs into a compelling mystery.
