6-year-old Leelo dreams of being a comrade. Frankly, she doesn’t quite know what that means, only that it would be cool. The film illustrates everyday life in Estonia in the 1950s, when even an old classmate can become a threat. This thought-provoking film is based on Leelo Tungal’s autobiographical novels.
