Ljubo: the plot

Switzerland: In the winter of 1939, Lubo, a young Yenish (nomadic nationality), is drafted into the Swiss army to defend the border. There, his cousin joins him and informs him that the gendarmes have taken away his children. They wrested them from their parents because they were the children of wanderers, gypsies, following the national re-education program Kinder der Landstrasse, a eugenics-based organization that ran rampant in Europe in the 1930s. Lubo’s revenge will have unexpected consequences, forcing us to rethink the blurred lines between good and evil.
