    • Synopsis
    • A young family move into a large house in the village. Mountains, quiet and a big lemon orchard beyond the window. It seems everything necessary for a happy life, is combined in one place. But this is Abkhazia in the early 90's, shortly after a terrible, bitter and bloody war that has made enemies of Georgians and Abkhazians - only yesterday good neighbours. Tens of thousands of Georgians have been forced out of this blessed land, giving leaving their lives behind them.
      Nature abhors a vacuum and the empty house deserted after the exodus, is gradually colonized by inhabitants. Living in a strange house, where everything, even the tablecloths left by former residents are still there, begs the question - can it now give peace and happiness?
