Rodeo – Taming a Wild Country

In 1992, Estonia saw its first free election since World War II. The young republic was in chaos. Still, a 32-year-old idealist called Mart Laar was elected into office and went on to become Europe’s youngest Prime Minister.
Estonian-Finnish co-production tells of the first years of independence as the country traveled towards capitalism and out of the Soviet past. Suddenly you could get bananas and pantyhose from the store – if you had money.
