Plot synopsis
The film is about Georg Ots, one of the most famous and beloved singers in Estonia and the whole former Soviet Union. His complicated fate was developed in rough and rapidly-changing times. Ots remained an unknown singer on international opera stages – it was a feature of the time that the Soviet system did not “squander” talents. It’s a very personal story about creative work, love, and intrigues, told through the eyes of Asta Saar, the artist’s second wife.
