This drama tells the harrowing story of an immigrant family in the New World. On arrival in Canada, their hopes for a better life were dashed when immigration officials refused to grant entry to their daughter. During a routine medical examination it was found that Kasia had contracted an infectious eye disease. She is separated from her family and sent back to Europe alone.

This dramatized short film focuses on the arrival in Canada of a group of immigrants at the turn of the century. The main protagonists are a family with three young children who have left the old country in search of land to build the farm they have dreamt of for so many years. Fate will deal them a cruel blow when it is discovered that the young daughter must return because she has an infectious disease.
