Synopsis

Georgia 2011. A film director announces a casting for 15-23 year old youth. This search brings her to different locations: villages and cities. Here are many people who answer the call: some are interested in becoming part of a film, others are ready to share their sentimental stories... Those who prove to be interesting enough are followed through various dramatic situations. A film about how beautiful life can be and how difficult when you dream of being a hero. The protagonists of this film live and dream this heroism, whether they run from reality or face it head-on. They are old and they are very young, just beginning their lives. But they are all united in the poetry of searching.
