Directors: Anatoli Ulyanov, Natasha Masharova
The distant and magnificent continent of prosperity where a new live starts from scratch. This wonderland of reemergence for the decades have been attracting the tired of poverty Ukrainians. But where does one find a wizard capable of adapting their biographies to a new home? The families that impulsively emigrated from Ukraine to a sheer uncertainty, the children who have to adjust, the elderly who have lived in America for a long years yet still sticking with their memories of past. Their stories are painfully familiar. Starting from the era of silent films, the Ukrainian screens are familiar with a number of distraught emigrants. Even still, the filmmakers do spot, if not a wizard, at least a little pixie who makes the lives of the settlers like her a little bit easier. But who would be able to help her?..
