Lacko, a 17-year-old Roma boy, lives in a re-education centre in the town of Velké Leváre near Bratislava, Slovakia. Lacko spent his early years stealing and abusing drugs. Their neighbors treated them poorly because of their Roma heritage and the family eventually had to move. He misses his family, which does not show much interest in him but he is working on bettering himself so that he may go back home and help his family.
