The documentary is a manifesto between operatic tradition and feminist activism that examines the influence of Bizet's opera “Carmen”. It created and perpetuated a stereotypical image of Roma women and the enormous prejudice that is present in the imagery of Western societies till today. We witness how a group of Spanish Roma women collectively empower themselves and wish to change what is still the predominant vision of a Roma woman.
