When they are discovered by the authorities, the children face an impossible choice – join their parents who live on the streets, or accept a foster family for the sake of a roof over their heads and the opportunity to go to school. </p> <p><img src="http://www.euronews.com/media/download/articlepix/spartacus-cassandra-bb2-200215.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>French director Ioannis Nuguet’s sensitive film follows their difficult decision all the way – through their moments of doubt , anger and sadness, but also joy and hope. </p> <p>More than a documentary about the real life of a Roma family, the film is a truly universal epic where fragile heroes are facing a series of dilemmas and tragedies.</p> <p><img src="http://www.euronews.com/media/download/articlepix/spartacus-cassandra-bb3-200215.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>Spartacus and Cassandra were actively involved in the film and were consulted on the choice of images.</p>
