Nutsa, a young mother, lives with her two children in the suburbs of Tblisi in Georgia. Her partner Goga is in prison. They, along with other prison couples, must “officially” marry to gain visiting rights. But the routine of prison visits begins to change the meaning of their separated lives. The stress becomes unbearable, and even the conjugal visit acts to reinforce the bars between them. This is an austere yet compelling film where the characters are captured with sensitivity and compassion.

But together they refined and redefined the tango… Directed by Wim Wenders’ protege German Kral, this stylishly passionate doc covers two entangled talents.
