Rialto Open Air Cinema continues the great screenings on the 1st of July, with an uplifting and joyful film about finding connection and creating intimacy under the most difficult of circumstances.
A passionate tale of love and liberation set amidst the ultraconservative confines of modern Georgian society. A social drama portraying the story of the young Merab, a devoted dancer who has been training for years with his partner Mary for a spot in the National Georgian Ensemble.
The arrival of another male dancer, Irakli, a handsome and gifted dancer with perfect form and equipped with a rebellious streak - will awaken forbidden feelings in him and make him confront the conservative society of his country. Irakli throws Merab off balance, sparking both an intense rivalry and romantic desire that may cause him to risk his future in dance as well as his relationships with Mary and his family.
