Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Because of many good deeds the Finns did for Lenin prior to the Russian Revolution, their persistent desire for independence from Russia was permitted. In one instance, Finns helped Lenin escape from the police during a journey he took in 1907. Lenin's affection for the country was reinforced during his frequent journeys through Finland. This historical epic, featuring both documentary and fictional footage of the founding Soviet leader, chronicles the Finnish struggle for independence and explores the basis for trust between Finland and the Soviet Union.
