Our hero, as they say, is an ordinary country girl who was brought up in traditions of love for God, love for people, love for Ukraine. Nastunya's parents died when she was a little girl. When she was 16 she entered URA (Ukrainian Rebel Army) and witnessed the murder of her husband. In 1945 - her was arrested and delivered a child on the concrete floor in prison.

Maybe it is the art of giving warmth and kindness to other people…
