United States and Estonia
The year 1991 marked a time of change for the Republic of Estonia. This small European nation decided to end the Soviet Union’s power over them in a completely radical way: by singing. Though it’s tough to imagine the former superpower giving in to simple songs, this documentary chronicles the Estonian people’s drive for freedom and their peaceful way of attaining it.
