A passionate tale of love and liberation set within the conservative modern society of the Republic of Georgia, the film follows Merab, a devoted young dancer who, with his partner Mary, has been tirelessly training to land a spot in the National Georgian Ensemble. The arrival of Irakli--a confident and gifted male dancer with the perfect form and rebellious streak Merab lacks--at once sparks both an intense competitive rivalry and a burgeoning romantic desire that threatens Merab's security, family relationships, and his future in dance.

Georgian society’s toxic homophobia gets a rainbow punch in Levan Akin’s bittersweet coming-out drama. By turns quietly erotic and heartbreakingly realistic, Akin sidesteps maudlin sentimentality and instead goes right for the jugular as he rips into Georgia’s macho posturing with the lightest of touches: a dance instructor has trouble keeping his testosterone in check, Irakli can’t quite get both feet out of the closet, and a brilliant tracking shot through a dysfunctional hetero wedding ratchets up the irony. But Akin saves his best shot for last with a choreographed bit of defiant sexuality set to a hammering drumbeat that left us laughing and clapping.
