Summary: Set in a village outside the Hungarian town of Gyongyos, this program follows two Gypsy families struggling to maintain their traditions in a modern communist state. Despite the romantic image, Gypsy life is harsh and often brutal. The Gypsies live in semi-slums, and they are forced by law to work, often for very low wages
