Nadeshda is one of Bulgaria’s largest Roma ghettos. The children Misho, Zorka and Tsveti appear to have little chance of breaking the cycle of prejudice, stigma and discrimination. Yet they dream of becoming professional classical musicians, far from the ghetto’s walls and its confining traditions. This will be no easy task, especially for the girls. The children and their parents will need to overcome the suspicions of their own community as well as the hostility of the outside world.
