Fourteen-year-old best friends Eka and Natia live in the former Soviet republic of Georgia. The year is 1992 and war rages throughout the country, threatening to reduce the capital city and surrounding areas to rubble. Eka's father is in prison so her apartment provides a refuge for Natia, whose parents constantly bicker. In this time of uncertainty, Natia entertains the amorous advances of a local boy called Lado, who gives her a gun for protection.
