In 1991, after nearly fifty years of rule by a brutal Soviet occupation, the small Republic of Estonia confronted their occupiers by announcing their independence to the world.
Their charge heralded the collapse of the Soviet Union and the freedom of now-suddenly former Soviet republics. Music played a pivotal role in these historical events.
The Singing Revolution tells the story of one country's undeniable thirst for self-determination and its unshakable belief in what it means to be free to be Estonian.
