Early 90s in the capital of the newly independent Georgia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The country is facing violence and a vigilante justice that plagues society. But for Eka and Natia, 14 years old and inseparable friends, life just unfolds. Although they are already dealing with men’s dominance, early marriage and disillusioned love, for these two girls in bloom life goes on.
