Cigán

Adam lives in a poor Roma village in Slovakia. Neglect, theft, drugs and violence, but also discrimination by the Slovak population and authorities are the order of the day. But there are also rays of hope in the 14-year old’s life: the priest who teaches the boys boxing, finds them jobs and helps them out of trouble. There is Adam's father, who earns his living by honest work and supports his sons in building up a meaningful future. And there is pretty Julka of the same age, Adam’s secret love. One day, he wants to escape this poverty together with her. But all at once, the sudden death of his father destroys Adam's hopes and dreams. His mother marries the influential criminal Žigo of all people, who drags Adam and his brothers mercilessly into his criminal activities. When his girlfriend Julka is married to a rich Czech and moves away, Adam’s whole world collapses.
