Leaving with nothing more than a fierce love of their culture and the skills in their hands, generations of indigenous Estonians fled their homeland in 1944 fleeing the brutality of the advancing Russian soldiers. This multi-award winning film focuses on many of those stories of the women who kept that spirit alive through the woven patterns of their ancestors.
