  Description     The film  
Ukrainian Canadian Ted Baryluk runs a neighbourhood grocery in Winnipeg with his daughter in 1982. He talks about the range of ethnic backgrounds of his customers who are "mixed together, just like soup." He says he doesn't understand the First Nations people who come to the store. His daughter sees them as "immigrants."
