Little Miss Roma je intimni portret baranjskih romkinja koji se bavi rascijepom između naivnih snova i realnih uvjeta u kojima djevojke žive. Priča se odigrava jednog vrućeg srpanjskog vikenda kada Romi slave njihov godišnji bal i biraju kneza Roma i Mis Romkinja.Tko li će ponijeti titulu – najljepša djevojka ili najljepša haljina? I je li je pobjednica već unaprijed namještena?
Every summer, a few brave Roma girls will enter a beauty pageant in the bid to be called Miss Roma. But what if their dream is not a marriage proposal, but to go to high school and get a diploma?With an extraordinary access and seldom seen intimacy, we follow three girls on their journey of high stakes and self-discovery.
