Synopsis

An intricately woven inner journey covering the enduring past, the fleeting present and the lack of a promising future. But despite it all, it is the hope for change, which once drove, and still drives, the characters to firmly cling to their lives. Such is Yusuf: in 1997 he was a politically active left-wing student; and in 2007, he was a disillusioned misfit. After a decade of imprisonment for a lost cause, he returns to his native village in the eastern Black Sea region. His widowed mother is more than happy to welcome him, but the overbearingly beautiful mountains of his homeland only deepen his self-doubt and isolation. One day, meandering in a tavern with his childhood friend, Yusuf encounters a similarly wounded soul. She is the ethereal Eka, a Georgian prostitute who yearns for the day she can reunite with her daughter across the border. These kindred spirits will help each other to confront their darkest fears.
