SYNOPSIS

A once-popular musician in Georgia, Levan Svanidze lives in a 14 m2 apartment with his elderly mother Lamara. Forgotten by everyone, Levan seems to have no luck at finding a job or a girlfriend. But despite everything, Levan is an optimist: he doesn’t fall into despair, tries to overcome his routine problems and achieve success. As for Lamara, her main concerns are that her son is well-fed, dressed appropriately, but most importantly - not affectionate with a woman unworthy of his love.
