A visit with Pauline Berekoff at the Sons of Freedom Gilpin Settlement, a little known community near Grand Forks, British Columbia. The Sons of Freedom are descended from the Russian Doukhobors who came to Canada in the late 1800's, and Pauline talks about the fight to maintain her beliefs, and about her community's conflict with the Canadian government.
