When former wrestling champion Kakhi learns that his son Soso has gotten himself into difficulties, he travels from Georgia to New York to help him… Profoundly melancholic, infused with tragicomic moments, and characterized by a sense of understanding for its protagonists, Koguashvili’s film captures the bond between a father and his adult son, an ancient bond in which the older man will always feel the need to protect his blood, no matter what the circumstances.


Synopsis

When former wrestling champion Kakhi learns that his son Soso has gotten himself into difficulties, he travels from Georgia to New York to help him and find out what is going on… Levan Koguashvili has set his latest offering in Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach, capturing the diverse atmosphere of a neighborhood that is home to immigrants from the former Soviet Union – a place where languages and ethnic groups mix, where most shop signs are in Cyrillic, and where people’s nostalgia for their homeland mingles with their current woes. Profoundly melancholic and infused with tragicomic moments and a sense of understanding for its protagonists, the film captures the bond between a father and his adult son, an ancient bond in which the older man will always feel the need to protect his blood, no matter what the circumstances.
