Fred Ise recounts how a group of patriotic youth raise a flag in the early morning of August 28, 1941 as the Russian army retreats and the German army advances into Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. Five hours of “freedom” in the midst of a battle between two competing occupying powers is relived as a story about young people’s resilliance in the midst of war. An Estonian flag is raised at the tower of Pikk Hermann, symbolically declaring Estonia’s independence, if even for a moment.
