What do you see when you see me? What do I see when I look at me? What do I see when I look at you?

Every day, Sinti:zze and Rom:nja move in a world of foreign attributions and prejudices. Numerous clichés and stereotypes are projected onto them from the outside: they are supposed to be music-making nomads and spirited dancers, unattached and free, including romantic campfires in the woods. But what if reality deviates from these cemented images? And what if it doesn't?

How do I go my own way independent of all external circumstances and perceptions? How can I be myself, with all my facets and contradictions?

Together with Sinti:zze and Rom:nja from Hungary and Germany, director and Sinto Stefan Herrmann tells of empowerment and self-assertion, of double exclusion, of stereotypes reproduced again and again and the attempt to invalidate them. With the ensemble of the Hungarian dance group “Romano Glaszo” he asks: How can the visibility of one's own identity function in a world full of prejudices? And what price am I willing to pay for my struggle to overcome resistance?
