A portrait of Vasilka, 84 year old. A Macedonian that immigrated to Quebec. A family history that follows the history of Yugoslavia (the Nazi-fascist occupation, the communism and finally the emigration and difficult integration in Canada). The film was a commission by a Canadian doctor of Macedonian origin, who wanted a film to remember his mother as a keepsake to the children. But the director wanted to make an author-centred, emotional and narrative film with personal images and also some footage from Cinematheque of Skopje. The film was produced by a small team of film students.
