Synopsis

The Christmas of 1905 in Vigala is not the peaceful holiday. The manor house has been pillaged during the peasant's revolt. The air is full of smoke of fire and there is the premonition of inevitable punishment. Bernhard Laipmann is a tenant farmer whose wife is asking him to leave home since her husband keeps drawing the attention of the authorities. Having doubts about leaving, Laipmann is inspired by endeavoring towards freedom and equality and alarmed by the violence of the revolution. He has not taken part in pillaging the manor house, so he should be found guilty. Nevertheless, Laipmann is captured after being falsely accused and he is ready for the worst. One more time he has to make a choice and now he is not having any doubts. Based on real events, "Christmas in Vigala" is the story of the evolution of consciousness and small revolutionary upheavals.
