Documentary - 23' - Spain - 2008

In the Romany culture, the role of the man and the role of the woman are well delimited. So there is no need for a girl to study, and she can drop out of school early with the consent of the community. We are in Gracia, in Barcelona. This story, is that of Tatiana; the first and only woman in the neighbourhood to achieve higher education and walk the solitary path of student life. She takes us through an entertaining trip into her community, from women's gatherings at her grandma's to the shop of her aunt, one of the very few to value education.
