We are super proud to announce that Levan Akin’s upcoming feature will premiere at La Quinzaine Des Réalisateurs 2019 - congratulations to the team and thank you to the selection committee!

The film revolves around Merab who has been training since a young age at the National Georgian Ensemble with his dance partner Mary. His world is suddenly turned upside down when the charismatic and carefree Irakli arrives and becomes both his strongest rival and desire. In this conservative setting Merab finds himself having to break free and risk it all.

World sales is handled by Totem Films.
