The film takes a small town television station as the centerpiece of its story and draws a pseudo-ethnographic portrait of a community in Georgia. Rituals and traditions define the lifestyle here, though a distant crooked reflection of the modern world has already invaded the collective mind. Here performance of one’s self in the best possible way is of primary importance. This cinematic kaleidoscope of characters, places and events unveils the life of the local community and its hybrid values. The sole journalist of the television station, Dariko, is like Virgil from Dante’s ‘Divine Comedy’, taking the audience on a trip through the community’s moments of revelation.
