Year

At the dawn of the new Millennium, two strong mentors are giving guidance to young women: the patriotic girl scout leader Anne Eenpalu and the professional organizer of beauty contests, Tiina Jantson. Eenpalu prefers a more conservative approach compared to Jantson’s rather sensual idea of the female image. They seem to operate from the opposite ends of the spectre, while also having a lot in common. They are both grooming women to become a valuable commodity in the men’s world.
