Through an absorbing combination of fact, fiction and mythology, it tells the story of Branko, a Roma Gypsy baby born in the Auschwitz concentration camp, who receives the prophecy that he will be his people's saviour. Named Branko, after an inmate who has been compiling the Gypsy Bible, he is smuggled out of the compound and entrusted to a Red Cross official. Some thirty years later, on the death of his adoptive father, Branko sets out to remould his identity. He witnesses the relentless persecution of the Roma in Eastern Europe and comes to hear of the Gypsy Bible, the Holy Scripture that his namesake had miraculously reclaimed from the collective memory of the Roma in Auschwitz. This is the Bible which, hidden and awaiting discovery, prophesies Branco's leadership that will reunite the Gypsies and lead them to Romanestan, their mysterious homeland.
