A sinti family of Bolzano was used to earn a living playing music, but since Laki, the only violinist of the group, has become an evangelist, it had to stop playing. Trying to reunite the group, Radames, the chief of the family, will experience how much the sinti traditions are changing. This documentary is about conflict between generations and cultures, and between fathers and sons inside an ethnic reality, which is sadly disappearing.
