When his past activities require Endel to return to his native Estonia, he becomes a school sports teacher and begins to train his students in the art of fencing. The headmaster is dismissive, but the fencing programme is popular with parents and the students prove to be talented. Talented enough to enter the all-soviet fencing competition, but the competition is staged in Leningrad, where the Russian secret police consider him to be an enemy of the people.
Based in part on the real life story of Estonian fencer Endel Nelis (1925-1993) this is an engaging drama with engaging performances from Endel’s charges.
