Plot Summary
Between 1986 and 1991, the people of Estonia protested against their Soviet occupiers in large rallies. Although these protests were fundamentally peaceful, the Estonians used a weapon powerful enough to rattle an empire: song. Patriotic songs, to be precise, which the Soviets had outlawed in Estonia. Thousands upon thousands would assemble to sing in defiance. This documentary unveils the story of a population that stood up against their oppressors with nothing but their voices and their pride.

    This film was excellent, in spite of some technical difficulties with the showing, we attended . The beauty of this small country, the strength and courage of it's people through over a century of varied occupations are examples of the glorious possibilities of how other countries can triumph over enemies. To link arms by the thousands every five years and sing ... every citizen there deserves a Nobel Peace Prize, as do all the brave souls who found a way to survive by leaving and treasuring their culture and language in a new country.
