A twelve year old Roma, Lali,  wins a bar of chocolate at cards. The candy wrapper  
contains a winning coupon for a Vespa motorbike. The motorbike has to be picked up  
in Budapest and Lali decides to leave the world he knows and travel to Budapest. His
journey is not only to get the Vespa  but to find his father whom he has not seen for a
long time.
On his journey he meets all kinds of people, those who assist and those who interfere.
On the road he learns about himself and the treatment and the place of the Roma in
today's world.
