Relates the lives of the women of Gee's Bend, Alabama, who for more than 150 years have made quilts reflecting their history and daily lives. Having worked in isolation for generations and continuing to inhabit the remote plantation land their parents once slaved, they have received unexpected attention from the artistic world.
