Description:
A touching story about a young woman forced to relive painful childhood memories when performing an ancient ritual following her grandmother's death.

Seventeen-year-old model Ariadna returns to Georgia to attend her grandmother's funeral. Back in her motherland, she receives an unusual request: according to an ancient tradition, Ariadna, as the youngest member of the family, is responsible for reuniting the body and soul of her grandmother by connecting a thread from the place of her death to the resting body. At first reluctant to fulfil such a bizarre-sounding ritual, Ariadna soon finds herself carrying a single line of thread across unspoiled Georgian countryside, accompanied by Temo, a family friend. Over a number of days and nights, Ariadna is forced to confront the impact that the complex, sometimes cruel matriarch had on her childhood.

"Humans are haunted by a deep sense of existential bewilderment; Who am I? Where am I from? Where is this life taking me? To find answers, we wander labyrinths, where dead ends are fatal, and the way out is victory over death. This is the path of initiation and accomplishment that each of us must overcome." (Juja Dobrachkous)
