Estonian film recently celebrated its 100th anniversary and increasingly features international collaborations, this time with Georgia, another small country with complicated history. In 1992 Georgia, two Estonian men are the last ones left in their village caught in the middle of the Abkhazian War. When wounded fighters from both sides end up at Ivo’s house, the old villager is determined to follow his moral principles. An improbable diplomatic mission unfolds within the walls of his home.
