Summary
With the collapse of the former Soviet Union, millions of Russians have left their beloved Mother Russia in search of an economically better life in America or Australia. Others have left due to the ethnic clashes that began in the post-Soviet era, or in search of their roots. This episode features Russian Jews, German Mennonites, and Volga Germans who have lived in Russia their whole lives and their families go back for generations. Even though they were repressed under the old system, they still believed in a new Russia. Slowly, they began to realize they could not make a life in their homeland and decided to leave. We meet them as they begin their new lives.
