Rafael – the minister of sports of an unrecognized country, and Natasha – a Russian opera singer, try living together in Abkhazia – a war-torn future-less country. Observing their difficult relations, we see life in a place marked by war and nationalism. The film portrays trapped people dreaming of peace, normality and happiness.
