This musical and comedic film tells the story of an unusual Roma family, seen through the eyes of the ten-year-old girl Manusha. After the death of Manusha's grandmother, Ilonka, her parents, consumed by their everyday troubles, do not even notice the odd occurrences in the house. Manusha quickly realizes that the house is possessed by the ghost of her deceased grandmother, and with the help of her friend Zdenko, the undertaker's son, she attempts to soothe the restless and angry ghost. However, Manusha gradually discovers a family secret from the past that will help her confront the curse placed upon her deceased grandmother and her entire family.
Notes to parents: Some coarse language, drinking by adults, and a scene where the main character's mother is falsely accused of being a prostitute. Depiction of the struggles of a Roma family and the prejudice they face in everyday life. Learn more by visiting our lobby display (Jan. 31 only?) by Lolo Diklo: Romani Against Racism.
