Aufschlussreiche Schilderung einer Roma-Gemeinschaft im Kosovo, von den Protagonisten selbst produziert.

Plementina is a village some 15 kilometers from Pristina.
Plementina’s 2000 people live in the shadow of two aging coal-burning power plants.
Their own story, life, festivals, the poverty of the community, the importance these youth accord to education, and some of the activities that they enjoy. The overwhelming presence of the power plant, the need for a sanitation system, and the strains of crowded housing are all depicted.
We just need music, peace and love to be a happy…
