2012. Family Portrait in Black and White follows a passionate Supermom, Olga Nenya, during three turbulent years that see her brood of 17 foster children grow into rambunctious teenagers. Olga is a loving mother but she is no Mother Teresa. Raised by the Soviet regime, she believes in communal responsibility over individual freedom and runs the family with a Stalinist determination. Olga does not see color or creed of her foster children of whom 16 are bi-racial, results of amorous relationships between local Ukrainian girls and African students. As a single mother, Olga fights tooth and nail to keep her family together and to give it strength and support with sometimes overbearing control.
