Regie si scenariu: Miroslav Janek
VO ceha / Subtitrari in engleza

Filmul documenteaza un experiment, doua universe unite prin muzica, punand accent pe acele fonte ascunse care ne influenteaza destinul personal.
Dupa ce cantareata Ida Kellerova a ascultat o inregistrare a lui Vierka, a decis s-o invite pe tanara talentata sa studieze alaturi de ea, dar si sa traiască cu ea. Iar invitatia a fost facuta intregii familii. Astfel, o familie de rromi slovaci, care traisere in conditii rudimentare, in apartamente fara curent, s-a mutat… Si asa a inceput aventura cantaretei Ida si a musafirilor ei neobisnuiti. Insa intr-o zi, Vierka si intreaga ei familie a disparut…
Personajul principal al filmului, Vierka Berkyova a castigat a treia editie slovaca a concursului de televiziune SuperStar.

From the director of the movie KHA-CHEE-PAE, that we have screened in the program Documentary Mondays in March this year.

ENGLISH VERSION

When the singer Ida Kellerova heard the recording with Vierka’s songs she not only decided to invite the talented young woman to work with her but also opened up to Vierka’s entire family to live with her. The Slovakian Roma, still living in chillingly inadequate conditions in flats without electricity move in and the adventure begins as the temperamental musician and her unconventional guests share the daily life.One day however Vierka and her entire family disappear…
Miroslav Janek documented this experiment and made a film about the hidden and often unacknowledged forces that determine and condition the various ideas about a person’s journey through life.
