As young girls in a Georgian village, Nana and Irina used to spend the nights watching the sky and shyly exploring their mutual feelings. Thirty years later, Nana has an adolescent daughter, named after the love she hasn't seen for decades. But Irina returns and both women must face the past barging into their lives. In two timelines, this imaginative minimalist debut examines the fragility of star-crossed desire.
