Synopsis by Lucy Haig
While on the run from Soviet forces in the 1950s, Endel Nelis (Mart Avandi) begins a fencing club for the children in the small town in Estonia where he settles. Despite opposition from the school's principal (Hendrik Toompere Sr.), he pushes forward and earns the respect of his pupils and their families as he brings joy to their lives. But when the children enter a fencing competition in the Soviet Union, Endel realizes that helping them achieve their full potential could expose him to danger. Directed by Klaus Härö.
