In 2010, a lynching incident happened in Selendi, a small town in Manisa, Turkey. The locals raided the homes of Romani people who lived in the town for many years together, burned their cars to kick them out. On the other hand, the authorities exiled all the Romani people to the other cities in one day when the events could not be relieved.  This event, which received a reaction and drew attention throughout the country, was forgotten in time. However, the lives of the Romani people who were relocated from their homes were not the same. This documentary, about the events and sides, was made for an international television network.
