F5 is a musical, consisting of eight short stories. Eight because there are eight popular Georgian music bands taking part in the film and each short story is dedicated to one of them. The film is both documentary and feature. The documentary part is the one where each music band is presented before the beginning of a short story. The feature part is the short story itself. Each short story is played out on the verge of the real and illusory worlds. F5 is the first case in the Georgian cinema history, of a film which is a combination of three cinema genres: feature, documentary and a musical.
