The Caravana Rolidei rolls into town with the Gypsy lord at the mic: he does magic tricks, the erotic Salome dances, and the mute swallow performs feats of strength. A young accordion player is completely enamored of Salome and he begs to come along. The Gypsy lord shrugs, and the accordionist and his pregnant wife, Dasdo, join the troupe. Television is their enemy as they go from the coast deep into the Amazon. Salome lets the accordion player sleep with her once, with Dasdo's knowledge. He's moonstruck. Then, after Dasdo's baby is born and financial disaster hits the troupe, the accordionist must choose between seeing his wife a prostitute and leaving the caravan.
