The journey is only complete when Winy, her mother, joins her from Mexico in order to prepare a show with some of the city’s biggest talent. Together they discover the spirit of Bajari, the name the Gypsies give to the city of Barcelona. Her niece and grandniece pick up her trail in Barcelona, joining a show with the city’s biggest talent.
