After a night in jail, April returns to the basement of the luxury hotel where she, along with other women, works as a sex worker. The women's lives in Tbilisi, Georgia are defined by men, in which they are a disposable commodity - something to vent your anger on. In the shadow of the luxury hotel, she meets Dije, a young Nigerian immigrant. „The very personal way that Elene Naveriani has of approaching reality gives her debut film a venomous power that seems to compress all the melancholy and shattered dreams of her protagonists into it. Beauty in misery, this is what she brings her mother country. And she does so with the clarity of mind and formal audacity we’d like to see from many artists.“ (cineuropa.org)
