An intimate documentary about love and music by Czech filmmaker Pavla Fleischer. In the summer of 2004, while on an Eastern European road trip, Fleischer met and fell in love with Eugene Hutz, lead singer of New York's gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello. Captivated by his energy and his musical verve, and desperate to get to know him better, she decided to make a film about him. The film follows Eugene and Pavla on their subsequent road trip through Eugene's home country, Ukraine. It is the story of two people travelling together on two very different courses: her aim is to rediscover a forgotten romance; his is to rediscover his roots. She hopes to find love on the road, while he hopes to find musical inspiration from the gypsy culture he is determined to preserve.
