At the end of WWII, a spirited, independent woman returns to the place of her birth, a small village in the verdant Dutch countryside, to start a new life with her young daughter. Thus begins a remarkable portrait of a family and a community, of mothers and daughters, and of one indomitable woman. Lived by Antonia and learned by all in her lineage, it's a legacy of life and love that spans five generations.
