Estonian director-producer Peeter Rebane’s debut feature will be a Cold War thriller set in the Soviet Union in the 1970s. The project, entitled Firebird, is based on a true story revolving around a dangerous love triangle formed by Sergey (Tom Prior), a troubled conscript, his charming and ambitious friend Luisa (Diana Pozharskaya), secretary to the base commander, and Roman (Oleg Zagorodnii), a daring young pilot in the Soviet Air Force. The three characters will embark on a fatal affair of forbidden love and deception, walking the precarious line between love and friendship. Sergey is forced to face his past while Roman's career is in jeopardy and Luisa struggles to keep her family together. As the walls close in, they risk their freedom and their very lives in the face of an escalating KGB investigation and the multiple perils of an all-seeing Soviet regime.
The script was penned by the director and lead actor Tom Prior (Dusty and Me, The Theory of Everything [+lire aussi :
