Antonio is twelve. He lives in Jerez de la Frontera in southern Andalusia. Born into a Gypsy family of flamenco artists, he dreams of performing on television. Thanks to a regional contest of guitar on the radio, he will make his dream come true: register a video clip. Antonio has been playing the guitar since he was five and, as everyone else here, is self-taught. He is never without his guitar, for he uses it to express his feelings, the high and low moments of his childhood. Before playing, Antonio always talks to his guitar as he would a friend. Together they feel so much stronger.
