The film traces the music and culture of the gypsies along the route they travelled from India through the Middle East into Europe. Released in 1982, the film presents a rare glimpse into the life of the Roma people in Eastern Europe in the age of Communism. The film concludes with scenes from the 3rd World Romani Congress held in Germany in 1981 at which Roma people from across the world came together and interacted with each other and with brethren from India.
