  • Orig. Title: Zašto je Dragan napravio orkestar

Dragan Petrović, a Romany from a small village in the Balkans, used to be a horse trader. But then he traded a horse for a tamboura. He has never learned to read music, but he has taught his three sons how to play music by ear. He founded a band with them, not only to make a living, but also to keep his family together. This unusual band’s struggle for existence is filled with comedic, as well as deep emotional moments.
