A group of musicians, Roma, non-Roma and African, meet in an evangelical church in
Eastern Slovakia to record a CD of old Roma songs. The recording process, and the music itself, become a sort of therapy, a new purpose in life for many of them. Béla cannot express his sorrow after losing his wife and children but he puts all his emotions into his touching songs; Irena leaves her husband and children for a couple of days to devote herself to the songs she always considered a part of her life. This documentary is about happiness, love, tolerance and the therapeutic power of music.
