Dragan Petrović, a man of the Roma ethnic group, from a small village in the Balkans, used to be a horse trader, but while visiting one of the trade fairs, he traded a horse for a tamboura. He never learned to read music but he taught his three sons how to play music by ear and he founded a band, not only to make a living out of it, but to keep his family together.This unusual band’s struggle for existence is filled with comedic, but also deep, emotional moments.
