American Gypsies provides an intimate portrayal of a modern Gypsy family, coping with one another and with the outside world.  They live life by their own rules and fight to hold on to their traditional values, all while trying to grab a piece of the American dream.

Beyond the superficial portrayal of the Gypsy people is a rich cultural heritage that has survived because of the generational secrecy and transience of Gypsies.  This series takes viewers inside sacred traditions and customs that have survived for thousands of years, but never before been witnessed by non-Gyspies, and explains how the modern day gypsy co-exists with the modern world.
