Manana, a housewife in her 50s, faces two incompatible choices. Should she choose the family to which she has selflessly devoted her life, or her writing – her life-long passion? When she faces her fears, the price is high – and one hell of a surrealistic, cinematic ride awaits the audience. Set in a retro-futurist landscape of concrete buildings, this debut by the Georgian director portrays a woman who faces social stereotypes head-on.
