"Disco and Atomic War" tells the story of a strange kind of information war, where a totalitarian regime stands face to face with the heroes of popular culture. And loses. Western popular culture had an incomparable role in shaping Soviet children's world-views in those days-- in ways that may seem slightly odd today. Finnish television was a window to a world of dreams that the authorities could not block out. Woven into the political thriller are staged scenes based on the memories of people who were children at the time. "Disco and Atomic War" offers its own version of recent history, mixing spy games into a human tragicomedy.
