Julian and his family are part of a gypsy tribe living in a camp in the French Dordogne. Since their ancestors settled there, coming from Figueres, they have kept Catalan as their mother tongue - they call it gypsy - and they don't want to learn any other language. There are about 600 of them in this tribe and between 20 and 25.000 all over France. 

Every year, in the spring, the tribe undertakes the rally of the cemeteries, a sacred journey that will take them to visit all the cemeteries where their deceased are buried. We will accompany this journey along thousands of kilometers through France, visiting the diaspora of Catalan gypsies, attending the tribe's struggles and always with the ubiquitous gypsy music.
