Hundreds of Czech Roma seek asylum in western Europe. Great Britain is the country they primarily head for thanks to its relatively liberal asylum legislation. Mira Erdevički's documentary follows the Kováč family as they attempt to find a new home and identity in Britain. Grandmother Ester Kováčová was granted permanent asylum there. She died, however, soon after, and her two sons and eight daughters had to bury her in London. Erdevički has an uncanny ability to adapt to her subjects, and is able to capture really intimate moments. The scene of the funeral that is linked to deep contemplations about home and one's place in the world are among the film's strongest moments.
