Two families have physically survived a brief but devastating war in Abkhazia. Being on the winning side they are granted the hastily vacated houses of the defeated but seem incapable of building a new life in peace: war continues in everyday life because the battles still rage within them...
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?
