Synopsis

Tamari, a young war refugee from South Ossetia, is preparing for her first day at her new school in a small Georgian mining village. Arriving to class with a new package of markers given to her by her mother, Tamari is seated beside Datho, a boy who is often mocked by his Georgian classmates because of his Russian heritage. Seeing an opportunity to finally pick on someone himself, Datho destroys Tamari’s markers. When Tamari rejects his initial attempts to apologize, Datho must find a way to make amends.
