    A deaf girl from an illegal Roma settlement escapes the brutal world of reality for one of world of rhythm, dance and imagination.

    10-year-old-Denisa is an outcast in many ways. She is an illegal citizen of a gypsy camp in Poland, a female in a patriarchal gypsy community, and most importantly of all she doesn’t speak; nobody has ever diagnosed her with severe hearing disabilities. Even the children from the camp call her “the stupid one“, but Denisa is far from it. She simply has a world of her own – a world full of rhythm and dance. Ever since fi nding a box of Bollywood DVDs in a nearby garbage dump, Denisa wants to dance and dress like the glamorous women in the films. Together with other children from the camp she tries to create Bollywoodesque choreographies. This is Denisa’s way of surviving extreme poverty, aggressive attacks from the neighbours and the threat of eviction.
