Contrasting visions of world cinema

Since he was a kid, Merab has been dance partners with Mary. His world is turned upside-down when the charismatic Irakli shows up and quickly becomes a rival as well as the object of an unexpected attraction. Torn between his professional ambitions and the need to find his way, Merab is forced to make choices that will change his life forever. For his lively, intimate third feature, the Georgian-born Swedish filmmaker takes an uncompromising look at the quest for identity. A disconcerting romance set against a wave of conservatism in Georgia that preaches tolerance to difference.In collaboration with Fugues."... the filmmaking skills are frequently exceptional and Gelbakhiani is riveting."
