Flamenco is passed down along the family in the gypsy community that gave us the icon Carmen Amaya. Carmen’s spirit hovers over the extended family bearing her name—true relatives and adopted “cousins” passionate about their music and dance. The flamenco odyssey begins when Carmen’s grandniece Karime arrives in Barcelona in search of her roots. When her mother Mercedes Amaya (“Winny”) joins Karime from Mexico to put on a show with some of the city’s musical talent, they discover the spirit of Bajarí—the word for Barcelona in Caló, the language of the gypsies.
