During the Second World War

Estonia was in turns occupied

by Germany and the Soviet Union.

At the end of the war,

the Soviet Union invaded Estonia,

starting an occupation

under the rule of Joseph Stalin.

Estonian men, drafted by the Nazis,

became Enemies of the People,

hunted by Stalin's Secret Police.

Haapsalu, comrades!

We're arriving!

Many young people would do

anything to live in a big city.

Like Leningrad.

- You didn't like it there?

- No, I didn't.

Why is that?

I've... always preferred smaller places.

Charming.

You should enjoy working here then.

Political Economy...

Fencing?

- You're still training?

- No. Not anymore.

Not really an activity for the

working man, wouldn't you agree?

THE FENCER:

- Next, please.

- To Leningrad.

- Where?

- Leningrad.

Booth number three.

- How many minutes?

- Three.

- Hello?

- Endel?

- Endel? Is that you?

- Yes.

How've you been?

It's not exactly what we trained for.

They came looking for you again.

- What did you tell them?

- That you're training in Saratov.

Listen. Whatever you do,

don't stick out.

Do everything as you're told.

You hear me?

I hear you.

So how's the job?

School. Kids. What do you think?

You need to focus on something,

otherwise...

- On what? There's nothing here!

- One minute left.

Endel, listen...

Time's up.

I'll call you later.

Take off with both legs.

Like him.

What was that?

You need to jump!

Comrade Nelis!

I have to remind you

of your additional duties.

- You have not started yet?

- I'm sorry, I...

I'd hate to report

that you are coming short.

We don't want that, do we?

I wish you a pleasant weekend,

Comrade Nelis.

Goodbye, teacher!

- Good morning, teacher!

- Hello!

Sports Club.

Skiing on Saturdays

I hope there'll be some snow, too.

Yeah...

Me too.

I just wanted to say that...

I'm really glad you're taking them skiing.

It's a small place,

not that much going on here.

Yeah, of course...

I have to go now.

I'm Kadri, by the way...

Endel.

- Good morning!

- Morning, teacher!

Excuse me, could you tell...

Good morning, Comrade Nelis.

What can I do for you?

We are missing some equipment.

Our skis. I can't find them.

Oh yes! We share our sports equipment

with the Military Airbase.

Didn't I mention that?

No, you didn't...

Well, I do now.

Was that everything?

- Yes.

- Good!

With all due respect,

how can I run a sports club

without any equipment?

I really don't know.

I couldn't say.

You have the degree from Leningrad,

not me.

Goodbye!

What are you doing?

- Practicing.

- What are you practicing?

Fencing.

- Is it difficult?

- Yes, it is quite difficult.

Could you teach me, maybe?

I wanted to go to ballet school,

but we don't have one here.

- What's your name?

- Marta.

- I can't teach you, Marta.

- Why not?

Because there's no point

in fencing alone!

Wait, little girl... Marta?

Come here for a second.

Take it. It's yours.

Thank you, teacher.

Hello.

All right, let's break it up!

No hanging around in the corridor!

Sports Club.

Fencing on Saturdays

I want you all to come over here.

Form three... four lines.

Make sure you have space around you.

Just form four lines.

One behind the other.

My name is Endel Nelis.

Some of you know me already.

Be quiet when I'm talking.

Hands out of your pockets.

I will try to teach you

how to fence.

People usually think it's all about

thrusting and getting hits.

It's not.

The most important thing in fencing

is a precise sense of distance.

This is a foil.

In the old days it was

a deadly weapon used in duels.

One hit and you were dead.
