The story centers around a journey to Transylvania, which includes coming to the aid of a poor family of Gypsies. Site visitors can follow a linear tale or access hypermedia content that links to and the original emails. Visitors can also see an archive of raw mailing list writings, accessed by clicking on visuals. The site is updated every three months, and aims to also serve as an educational service, informing the general public of poverty in Hungary and the plight of Gypsies.
