Tamara is brought up in a dangerously unstable Baltic state. Her government parents are always pre-occupied with their attempts to save democracy and she no longer feels safe. In imminent danger, Tamara attempts to escape to Sweden with a friend, but is captured and sent to a safe house where she unexpectedly finds love.
Catastrophic events put Tamara further in danger as she’s thrust into a labour camp with other students and staff. Bernadette, a young student teacher, meets Tamara on a coach following their arrest. Becoming friends, they strive to carve better lives for themselves.
Detty enlists a soldier from a neighbouring service regiment to help them plot their escape. Still in great danger, together they plan to fight the ghastly regime inspired by a few friends, their courage and music.
Can they succeed and reach a tranquil life in a free country?
