Juanito is about to fulfill his dream of getting a pair of red boots and become a true flamenco dancer. His uncle Coco, a legendary singer in the flamenco tablaos of Barcelona, will help him achieve it.
Flamenco is passed on within the family in the Gypsy community that bore Carmen Amaya, the greatest flamenco dancer of all time. Her grand-niece, Karime, comes to Barcelona to pick up her trail. The journey is only complete when Mercedes Amaya “Winny”, her mother, joins from Mexico in order to prepare a show with some of the city’s biggest talent.
Together they will discover the spirit of Bajarí, the name of the city of Barcelona in Caló, the language of the Gypsies.
