Description: The film follows passionate supermom, Olga Nenya during three turbulent years that see her brood of 17 foster children grow into adolescence. Olga is a loving single mother who receives little government assistance but she is no Mother Teresa. Raised by the Soviet regime, she believes in communal responsibility over individual freedom and runs the family with Stalin-like authority. Unlike many in the Ukraine, Olga holds no racial prejudices as 16 of her foster children are bi-racial, results of taboo relationships between local Ukrainian girls and African students. Olga's parental limits are tested daily and her iron-fisted ways become a refuge for some and prison for the others.
