Main program

Gypsy / Martin Šulík

For 14-year-old Adam, the world of his poor Romany village has only two joys: boxing and Julka, a friend his age. But after the violent death of his father, the boy experiences life’s harsher side: his mother remarries and his stepfather demands obedience without trying to win Adam’s respect. Gradually, everything the boy was attached to begins to fall apart around him, and if his dead father hadn’t visited him, Adam wouldn’t know which path to follow. The inexperience of youth, loneliness and impulsiveness prevent him from using reason and cool consideration to face the obstacles in his way, and he sometimes ends up provoking those who stand by him. As a result, he will find himself in a situation from which there is only one way out.
