Hania’s Baba has a secret. A secret she’s bringing with her to her grave. Since moving into the Long-Term Care Centre, her Baba has been restless. Something from her past is haunting her. She urges Hania to return to their Ukrainian homeland to seek out the missing piece of their family history. Hania’s search for answers brings her to the edge of the ongoing war in Eastern Ukraine. Here she meets the people and sees the places touched by war, and finally confronts the truths of her Baba’s past.

“[BLOOD OF OUR SOIL] is the most powerful presentation that I have seen of the long history of travesties that the people of Ukraine have suffered from the time of Stalin through Hitler and now under Putin.”

- Linda Duncan, MP Edmonton-Strathcona, House of Commons March 20, 2017

A very moving and powerful account of the horrors of war and the very personal tragedies endured by the innocent victims caught in the crosshairs of Russian aggression that brings this very brutal conflict to life in a very real and tragic manner.

- Marco Levytsky, New Pathway
