Out has an exclusive, first-look clip of the film (above), which is directed by Peeter Rebane and starring out actor Tom Prior (who also co-wrote the film).

Firebird is based on a true, Cold War-era story about a troubled young soldier who enters a secret relationship with a fighter pilot and is "a passionate love story set against the backdrop of an Air Force base in occupied Estonia during late 1970's Communist rule," the official description reads.

"Sergey (Tom Prior), a soulful, young soldier who dreams of becoming an actor in Moscow, is counting the days until his military service ends. His life is turned upside down when he locks eyes with Roman (Oleg Zagorodnii), a sexy, enigmatic ace fighter pilot newly assigned to his base. Driven by their undeniable attraction, Sergey and Roman navigate the precarious line between love and friendship at a time when Soviet men in uniform caught having a sexual affair was met with the severest punishment. As their friendship grows into love, the men risk their freedom and their lives to be together in the face of an all-seeing Communist regime."

Firebird hits theaters on Friday, April 29.
