It all happened during the winter of 2001.

Once upon a time there was a girl in a Roma settlement. She was beautiful and very good. Her name was Maya. Everyone around loved her, and her father was a highly respected man in the area. The girl was 20 years old.

There was a wedding in the settlement, everything as usual, according to all the Romani traditions. The bride was wearing a magnificent white dress, the groom arrived on a black horse. Maya was the bride’s best friend. And suddenly the Roma from another town came to this wonderful celebration. Among them was a man Rado, clever, educated and from a very rich family. He did not live in the settlement.
