Synopsis
Based on Peter Maas' best-selling novel, this drama examines the world of contemporary gypsies in New York City. The hero of the story is a young gypsy boy wants to turn his back on his tribe and assimilate himself into mainstream American society. But he is drawn back into the fold when his grandfather, the charismatic king of the gypsy clan, passes the title onto the boy. The boy's father, feeling snubbed, plots to murder his son.

An American boy is born to lead his people. Film gives a fascinating insight into gypsy culture and traditions. Hayden is hilariously miscast as the King of the Gypsies.
