Legends of the winding roads

A captivating and emotional story about the hardship of being a rally driver under the totalitarian regime of the absurdist Soviet Union, where the military ran all forms of motorsports and the authority of the state controlled the athletes. The film also follows the rebirth and restauration of four rally cars driven by Estonian rally aces, who are the main characters in a captivating story that is so preposterous that it might seem unreal for the viewers today or anyone from the other side of the Iron Curtain.
