An amazing story about the chance for a better life of a young Roma-boy with great musical talent. Will he take a golden opportunity and change his seemingly predestined life?


Anti is an 18-year-old Roma boy with a passion for playing the guitar. He cannot read notes, as music is mainly a feeling for him. Anti lives in a gypsy slum in a remote corner of Hungary. By an unexpected opportunity he has a chance to break out now from his hopeless situation. He gets selected to the Snétberger Music Talent Center among sixty other young talents. He is mesmerized by the chance of a better life. Although it turns out soon that he has a huge disadvantage compared to the others, he can’t read the music sheets and he is not used to regular practice. Tititá is a story of a sensitive and lovable boy; full of unexpected twists and turns that engages the viewer with moving honesty, drama and special humor. Through his story the documentary gives a glimpse into the work of the Snétberger Music Talent Center with great music and memorable moments from the life of the Talent Camp.
