According to family tradition, 19-year-old Roma girl Laura should be married by now. But she has other plans. Since she was a little girl, she has dreamt of being a film director like her idol Woody Allen, and she is determined to make her dreams come true. In this intimist documentary, the young director offers us an insight into the life of her family and their community. Combining scenes from daily life with the family’s archival footage, she reveals to us a little-known world that rarely opens up to strangers. The film was awarded the Golden Pram for Best Documentary at the 2010 ZFF.
