Lost Dreams

  Description     The film  
In Lost Dreams, Kateryna Ewanchuck, a young Ukrainian in Manitoba, reflects on the oppression her people faced as immigrants to Canada. Having watched her father's dreams of owning a farm slip away due to discrimination and hard times, Kateryna takes on the fight for social justice, participating in the One Big Union and the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919.
