Film Description:
"The film opens with the traditional Easter ceremony of the Polish-Canadian community. Coming to Manitoba with the hope of a better life, these hard-working people developed their own skills and devices, keeping their traditions as they added their strength to the agricultural work-force. Spinning, woodcarving, embroidery and dance are among the many activities which reflect their Polish heritage."
