A visit to two Roma couples in Kosova opens up a parallel world both at the margins and in the midst of Kosovar society. Snapshots from a circle of life, love, labour and loss intertwine to tell very different kinds of stories. Almost without noticing, the viewer enters these lives and is intrigued to find out more about them. The tone and the images, while overall quiet and matter-of-factly, convey a wide range of emotions and moods, from vivacious to hopeless, from light to somber and back.
