Three Georgian women -- strong-willed matriarch Eka (Esther Gorintin), her long-suffering daughter Marina (Nino Khomassouridze) and rebellious granddaughter Ada (Dinara Droukarova) -- all live together in their stately yet crumbling apartment in contemporary Tbilisi, the capital of the former Soviet republic.

Eka pines for her beloved son Otar, a physician who is now a construction worker in Paris. Marina is deeply resentful of her mother's obsession with her absent brother, while Ada endures their bickering and yearns for a more adventurous existence.

When a friend of Otar's calls with tragic news, Marina and Ada must make a seemingly impossible choice: Do they keep Eka from learning the truth?
