The story of a Romani teenager with telekinetic powers and his passage from boy to man starting in Yugoslavia and ending in the underworld of Milan.


Perhan is a very poor young man who lives in a gypsy village with his disabled sister, his uncle and grandmother. He loves Azra and has repeatedly asked to marry her, but her mother rejected the proposals because he doesn't have any property. When his grandmother saves the life of Ahmed's son, an illegal, he proposes as an exchange for the favour to get Perhan's sick sister to a hospital in Ljubljana and pay all the costs. Perhan decides to accompany his sister on this trip, but the marginal lifestyle of Ahmed's family charms and drifts him into a life that he had never imagined.
