Blending a Cold War thriller and a romantic tale of forbidden queer love, director Peeter Rebane’s FIREBIRD tells a based-on-a-true-story of two Estonian pilots in the Soviet Air Force pursuing an illegal affair amidst a torrid love triangle that threatens their safety, their careers, and their relationship with a childhood friend.
