A young man arrives in an Estonian town that has been under harsh Russian Communist rule since the end of World War II. Taking a job as a sports instructor at the local school, he organizes a wildly successful fencing club, affecting the lives of the local children in profound and moving ways. At the climactic competition with Russian opponents, his past finally catches up with him. Inspired by the true story of Endel Nelis, Estonia’s legendary fencing maestro.
