In 1855, in the household of a wealthy Romanian noblewoman, a lavish dinner is being presented to important guests. As they arrive, Maria, a Roma-Gipsy slave, is making preparations, and sees an opportunity to change her and her son Dinca's fates.

Maria and Dinca's story is true; they helped change the course of Romanian history, hastening the abolition of slavery. This film is part of a future full-length project.
