‘Benjamin’ is a story about a 17-year old Romany who searches for his identity. State champion in geography isn’t satisfied with life in Romany environment and tries to find the way to be fully accepted from non-Romany people. Many of the Romany in the settlement are jealous at him because thanks to his school achievements his family got water and electricity. Benjamin’s parents, Jehovah’s Witnesses, often emphasize that their son is successful thanks to religion and God. Benjamin disagrees with them as well as in many other things. His mother and father don’t approve his dedication to hip hop, but in dancing Benjamin sees good chance to prove himself to everyone. He and his dance group trained hard throughout the year and now they have high expectations for the upcoming competition at the Dorm Day.
