In this stylish road movie travels Roma radio reporter Orhan Galjus, born in Kosovo, along with filmmaker Bob Entrop through Germany, Poland and Kosovo. They try to discover why the Sinti and Roma people kept silent about the genocide committed on their people. During World War II nearly half a million of them were murdered. In wonderful images we experience their unique encounters with Roma from across Europe. We witness interviews with German Sinti that survived the horrors of Auschwitz. Reaching out to the unknown commemorative sites in Poland, the story evolves while the inner drama of the protagonist Orhan develops. He is an engaging personality and compelling narrator, who is able to continue to captivate the viewer.
