Merab (Levan Gelbakhiani) and his dance partner Mary have been training together since a young age at the National Georgian Ensemble in Tbilisi. But everything changes with the arrival of the carefree Irakli, and an intense professional rivalry soon gives way to desire.

In the conservative world of Georgian dance, can Merab remain true to himself without jeopardising his future?

Professional dancer Levan Gelbakhiani delivers a standout performance in his film debut, while director Akin delicately balances the romance of sexual awakening with the confines of tradition in this highly anticipated and critically acclaimed feature.
