This is touching a 1950s-set drama about love and a man who finds meaning in his life through the children who need him. Endel Nelis is a young man who leaves Leningrad to escape the secret police. Arriving in Haapsalu, Estonia, he finds work as a teacher and founds a sports club for his students, teaching them his great passion – fencing. But Endel is faced with a hard choice when the children want to participate in a national fencing tournament in Leningrad.
