a long way from

    I'm translating a text about the family unit in Soviet times and I have got stuck on the following part:

    "The unit was now the 'Soviet family of a new type', but it was a long way from the free union advocated by Alexandra Kollontai"

    How could 'a long way from' be translated in this sense? Is it simply далеко от чего-то? Or is that too much to hope for?!

    Thank you

    (In this case it would be probably далекa от..., if you translate "unit" as ячейка.)
