It arose as a part of ethnomusicological research of ancient Roma songs which was carried out in the Slovak Academy of Sciences by Jana Belišová. In a mosaic-like way it traces the way the original Roma
music in Roma communities transport to the next generation or also how it ceases to exist under the influence of social changes. Three stories of children from Roma communities serve as certain interludes
consisting of materials gained during research trips. It is a film on Roma music and full of Roma music.
