The story: ( ‘West Side Story’ style)
Continuing his theme on the world of “Travellers” Tony Gatlif, French director of Romany descent, tries a new approach to urban culture, focussing on music and dance and the highly graphic world of youth, West Side Story style.
Geronimo is a girl raised by gypsies. She is called in to try to calm the imminent clash between two clans: the Turkish community and the gypsies. Nil is Turkish, about to be pushed into an arranged marriage, but the romantic teenager is in love with gypsy Luky, a boy from the other side of the fence. Shades of West Side Story?
Geronimo appeals for help to her former lover, Orange.
