Benjamin, a 17 year-old Roma boy and a state high school champion in geography, is determined to be fully accepted outside the Roma community. His parents, Jehovah’s Witnesses, attribute their son’s academic achievements to his strict religious upbringing but are not so keen on his love for hip-hop.
