Storyline

Jo est un jeune gitan dont la mauvaise réputation n'est plus à faire. La police n'attend plus qu'un faux-pas et sa famille, tournée vers la religion évangélique, menace de le chasser du clan. Après une énième nuit de vol, Jo revient au camp en compagnie d'un chien blanc qu'un homme mystérieux lui aurait confié. En écoutant son histoire, les gitans de la communauté sont convaincus que c'est un envoyé de Dieu qui met Jo à l'épreuve : il est sommé d'accepter cette épreuve ou de de quitter le clan à jamais.
