AKA: Циганска Магија. A romantic story in gypsy family makes a last, desperate effort to find its way out of the Balkan absurdity and misfortune. Their story mirrors the universal story of the rejected and the maladjusted, the forgotten street heroes who make the news only in the obituaries or crime sections...
A romantic story about a gypsy family, living on the periphery of the Macedonian capital. It talks about their efforts through everyday life, colorfully describing their ambitions and their honest and sweet dreams (for the modern world maybe seemingly ridiculous). It is a film about the warm and always hopeful gypsy spirit and performing actual gypsy magic curses. Even though the story is placed in a rural area, it is an everywhere story, with everywhere problems and situations, some of it from every level of society. Big dreams, love, family, acceptance of diversity – are spices of this honest and touching story, which gone make you laugh, and cry, from time to time. A bed is an object of a big dream, does it's gone release?[clarification needed] Someone dream is to be what is.[clarification needed] Their dreams are maybe usual and boring but painfully honest.[citation needed]
