A young French boy finds himself enchanted by the Roma community first because of his wish to learn to play guitar and later for his growing friendship/attraction to a young Roma girl named Swing. Though the film doesn't rank amongst the best of Gatlif's rich body of work it does weave a spell over the viewer with its genuine warmth in performance and wonderful music score throughout.
