Katya knows all about Stalin's big plans; she learned of them in school. But those plans mean little to her until the secret police arrest Papa and seize their family farm. With Mama and her younger siblings, Katya is crammed into a train headed for a forced labour camp in Siberia. Torn from everything she has ever known, Katya faces cold and hunger, and the ever-present threat of lost hope. As she clings to a single red stone from the fields she grew up in, she questions life. Where is Papa? Will she ever see him again? And what will become of Katya's family? Based on a true story, Red Stone explores the trauma and heartbreak suffered by many families in Russia during the 1930s when Stalin seized individual property and villainized property owners as kulaks.
