The source of this film is the personal life of my father, Nugzari, and his right hand. The hand that has been playing a crucial role in his economic and social life and has always been a guarantee of the financial stability of his family. The film traces a physical and a symbolic transition of his right hand: how the transition has been affecting his socio-economic life in his journey throughout different political ideologies that are represented and governed by symbolic hands.
