Estonia has a custom of huge, community, choral gatherings. They used these to their advantage to out maneuver the Soviets. Watch this if only to see the scene of Latvians, Lithuanians and Estonians holding hands across countries.

this is a very interesting and informative story of Estonia, mostly about the time it was shrouded behind the iron curtain. Estonians have an amazing spirit of survival through singing.

Great movie. Shows the resilience of the Estonian people, under the shadow of the Evil Empire of the USSR.
