Fleeing the invading Russians in the fall of 1944, they passionately maintained their cultural identity through making their folk arts, textiles and clothing. Leaving Estonia, often with nothing but the clothes on their back, those remarkable women brought the rich heritage of Estonian folk costumes to their new homes in the Western world. this film preserves our community story and tells the broader human story through the voices of our mothers and grandmothers.
