Pictures From the Old Country is the story of the filmmaker's quest to uncover the mysteries of her Slovak identity and heritage, after they were lost behind the Iron Curtain and her family's silence. As a young girl growing up during the Cold War, she is curious about the secret language her grandmother is speaking and the enigma that shrouds her past. Years later she embarks on a journey that crosses continents and generations - to discover Slovakia, why her grandmother came to America, and who she left behind.
