Plot synopsis
Serious men in search of love, when in the country one is not yet sick of the war. This story is as old as the world. She is sad and a bit funny. All over the world, it resonates in its own way. Gabriel García Márquez describes it in One hundred years of solitude . Emir Kusturica filmed it in his films. And this is how she showed itself in Abkhazia.
In the mountain village of Achandara, Lavrik Akhba, a lover of books and women, an actor of the Abkhaz drama theater, a second-rank captain of the border fleet, a real hero and a farmer, all in one, tries to help his neighbor Tuta find a wife through a dating site. After all, 60 is the time to get married and think about procreation. Who knew this story would turn into a hell of unrequited love for Lavrik himself?
