A very personal portrait of the American sculptor who spent parts of her childhood in German refugee camps for misplaced Polish people before she eventually settled ine the USA. Her work consists of sculpture and two-dimensional imagery and she has been exhibited throughout the world including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Art Institute of Chicago, Venice Biennale, Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Storm King Art Center. Filmmaker Daniel Traub follows various recent commissions from beginning to final installation. We also hear about her early struggles, passions and profound drive to become an artist. Told mostly through Ursula von Rydingsvard's own voice, the film includes interviews with colleagues, family members and close friends who offer additional perspectives on her life and work.
