Runtime: 1 hour, 15 minutes
Susa is a twelve-year-old boy growing up in a shabby neighborhood in post-Soviet Georgia. Susa's mother works for a gang of bootleggers who make and sell illegal home-brewed vodka, and Susa has been drafted into serving as a delivery boy. Susa's work is hard, his hours are long and he regularly visits the ugliest and most dangerous parts of the city. The one thing that gives Susa hope is his mother's frequent promises that some day his father will return, and he'll put the family back on a solid footing. To Susa's surprise, one day his father does come back, but the man he meets is a frail, emotionally devastated character who can't do much for himself, let alone his wife and son. Susa soon realizes he can only count on himself, but the youngster wonders how long he can deal with such a bleak existence.
