Amy, a young British girl travels to Caucasus Georgia in the hope of saving her doomed relationship with her boyfriend, only to pit her fiery brand of idealism against a mountain village and their mysterious local myth. Caught in a rising tide of uncertainty and tradition, her passion sees her crossing boundaries beyond which there are no winners.
