Max, a young boy on his summer holidays, finds himself drawn to the spellbinding guitar playing of Miraldo, a virtuoso of the guitar. This music becomes his passion and his connection to the neighbourhood of the local gypsy population and their music - Manouche Jazz. Max buys an old guitar, and through the guidance of his new teacher, Miraldo, gets an apprenticeship of the music and culture, and simultaneously finds himself drawn to Swing, a foul-mouthed unwashed unprincipled gypsy girl. From the director of "Latcho Drom" and "Gadjo Dilo".
