Upon reaching a town to stop and work the vineyards a Roma family learn that the new Vichy regime forbids them from being nomadic. They must settle in order to evade persecution from the Nazis, but their thirst for freedom makes a sedentary lifestyle difficult to bear. The film is at once a cinematic tribute to the Roma killed in the Holocaust and an ode to life lived freely.
