The parched, empty landscape of southern Spain is the setting for a tale of passion, music and revenge in Tony Gatlif’s film "Vengo." After his brother has murdered a member of a rival gypsy clan and gone into hiding, Caco becomes both the de facto figurehead of his ‘family’ and protector of his handicapped nephew. As tensions mount between the two clans, the threats of revenge against the nephew for the crime of his father are played out against a backdrop of rapturous flamenco music and dance performances. Award-winning writer director Gatlif (Latcho Drome, Gadjo Dilo) captures both the musical culture of Spain’s Andalusia region and the blood lust of vengeance in bold, beautiful cinematic language
