In Georgian with English subtitles.

A fiercely independent woman’s tranquility is disturbed by an unexpected affair, in this wry, tender and understated drama from Georgia.

A beautiful large field with lots of green, featuring a couple relaxing whilst in conversation.

Etero is a self-contented shop owner and blackberry forager in a small Georgian town.

The couple, the male in a tanned colour shirt and the female in a brown loose fitted top stand opposite one another and firecly look at each other in the eye over the shop counter.

Happily single in her late 40s, she never expected to feel a sudden surge of desire for one of the local men. A deliciously shrewd and refreshing portrait of a woman who doesn’t want, nor needs, to conform.

  • BBFC rating information (may contain spoilers)


    There are references to the controlling behaviour exercised over a woman by her now deceased father and brother who, after the death of her mother, placed obstacles in the way of her finding a relationship so that she would devote herself to looking after them. In a dream sequence the woman imagines her late brother grabbing her arm and calling her a “whore” after finding out she has been seeing a man.
