Abkhazia is a forgotten war torn country close to Crimea-Ukraine. Perched on the shores of the Black Sea, the unrecognized splinter state used to be a beach getaway for lucky Soviets, but palatial hotels now sit in post-communist ruin. For Abkhazian Sports Minister Rafael, however, everything’s looking up. He’s hopeful that the mysterious Domino World Championship he’s organizing will finally put his beloved motherland on the world’s radar and madly in love, he’s willing to overlook that his dear wife is a foreigner. A proud Russian opera singer, Natasha gave up her home and custody of her Russian daughter to take a chance on a new life. But when locals won’t warm to her and troubles cloud Rafael’s “sports” event, their bright future and even national pride start to wobble.
“What one comes to understand very soon in Abkhazia is that people live more in the past than in the present. To them, all this is as important, as whatever occurred just yesterday. For Abkhazia there simply is no clear future.” (Piotr Rosołowski)
