Amalia and her husband, Kalo, are fighting for their baby daughter’s life, as she was diagnosed with a heart disease at just 1 week old. The parents try to be better for their daughters, but their shortcomings, illiteracy and swindling-for-money lifestyle pose a great obstacle that will haunt them. Kalo decides he should try to leave for America in order to practice his petty swindling there, as other Romani families have done. But he doesn't get access as he's denied the entrance at the airport. He soon realizes that it's better to stay at home, do his usual trips in Western Europe while keeping his daughters in school, as his and his wife's life doesn't suit them any longer.
