More than eighty years ago a girl was born into a poor farming family, named Ultimina—“the last one”—though in fact she was followed by a younger sister, Finis. Ultimina is an animated and expressive storyteller. She shows old photos and reminisces: in winter the children would have to herd sheep in the bitter cold. Later, it was her brother who got to decide who she could dance with. She married young. Her husband drank and her father-in-law hit her. Ultimina is still angry about how the men made all the rules, she does nothing to detract from her energy and rebellious nature. An eloquent portrait of a strong woman, and an equally eloquent portrait of an era.
