A middle-aged, unemployed heroin-addict, Checkie, loiters on the Tbilisi street outside his son?s school, where he himself was once a promising student. His wife, meanwhile, struggles to pay the tuition and understand her husband?s lack of interest in the family?s survival?even as the bank repossesses their furniture. But when a group of policemen blackmails Checkie into entrapping the son of his wealthy friend, husband and wife are unified by the uncertainty of their deepening moral dilemma, and a series of worsening foul-ups, in Levan Koguashvili?s lightly humorous yet realistic drama about the fate of a generation left behind in Georgia?s post-Soviet era.
