Two seemingly disparate families, one living in the pulsating modern center of Tbilisi and the other on the city´s bucolic outskirts. Each one faces its own existential difficulties, but they are brought together by a tragic event. The victims of the accident offer not to press charges if they are paid. And so, Keti, whose sixteen-year-old son Nika caused the accident, is thrown into a chaotic series of meetings as she tries to collect the large sum of money.
With a keen sense of inventiveness, attention to detail and spoonful of the social absurd, this remarkable debut weaves a tragicomic story from multiple perspectives, while painting a panoramic and lively portrayal of contemporary society in Georgia.
The film premiered at Karlovy Vary IFF 2021 and won the critics' FEDEORA award.
