Under Stalin, hundreds of thousands of children were born in or sent to, the Gulags.
Children as young as three could be considered dangerous counter-revolutionaries and taken to the wilds of Siberia. Condemned for ’coming from the worst stock’, these children were separated from their families, abused, neglected and starved. Over time, more and more babies were born into the hell of the work camps. They grew up never knowing their families or homeland, believing that every child in the world lived the same way.
Of the generations that grew up in the gulags, only a few remain. In this moving documentary, they tell their stories.
