Olga Nenya, from a small Ukrainian town, is raising 16 black orphans in a country of Slavic blue-eyed blondes. The reality of growing up as a bi-racial child in Eastern Europe — a rare and truly visible minority — is not for the faint of heart. These children always have to be on guard against the world that surrounds them. A PBS Indies/Global Voices selection.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Frustrating, but it gets high marks for honesty.
Fresh: Riveting viewing.
Fresh: Looks at a Ukrainian family of one single mom and a huge brood of children and finds that love grows exponentially.
Fresh: Though only 85 minutes, the film captures an entire, bewilderingly extended family and way of life inside a sturdy frame.
