SYNOPSIS

Pamela is a young gypsy that lives in a small town in Romania with her daughter and her grandmother. In the midst of her hard life, she dreams about a man that can lift her out of poverty and a world in which perspectives don’t seem to exist. As a result, she pays a visit to a marriage agency. It doesn’t take her long to meet a Belgian man, who she clings to as her salvation. Without a doubt, she could live a more comfortable life by his side, but the question is – would it be a better life? Pamela’s energy and spontaneity, while not without a certain innocence, dominate this moving film that speaks to us about dreams and loneliness, social and cultural differences, and of the price of our dreams.
