Beate and Marta immigrated to Australia with their families, changing their lives forever. Leaving behind their native homeland, Latvia, both women struggled with finding acceptance, a new language, new customs and a foreign environment in Australia.

This film showcases the strength, humour and humanity needed to survive and flourish in a new land. Inga, her mother Beate and their friend Marta reflect on their lives and traditions, old and new.
