In 1928, when he was 24, Sidor Cembrowski fled Eastern Europe to build a better life for himself in Canada. He never forgot his family back home, and treasured the letters he received from them. After World War Two and the fall of the Iron Curtain on his homeland, the letters stopped. Sidor was unable to contact his family and died never knowing whether they survived the war or Stalin’s Reign of Terror.

Now, Sidor’s oldest daughter, Millie, and his great-granddaughter Annamari hope to fulfill Sidor’s dying wish and find his lost family. With Ancestors in the Attic, they journey back to Ukraine to try to reconnect with their ancestral roots and make their family whole again.
