Wonderful is a portrait about the young Roma generation in the outskirts of Barcelona, Spain.
Beyond stereotypical paradigms about Roma people, this project gives a glimpse into the world of this generation whose future seems to offer little promise and where social stigma, racial discrimination and social exclusion are shaping their reality.

With around 60% aged below 29 years, the Roma are a relatively young community. Embracing adult responsibilities very early and playing an important role in the economical activities of their families, they learn to be adults at a very young age. Their strength and maturity stand in opposition to their fragility, their hopes and wishes of living a free childhood and youth within one of the oldest minorities of Europe.

Between tradition, patriarchal structures and cultural and social globalization, it is the need of achieving ethnical recognition and defining their identity that most challenges this generation nowadays.
