A Chechen military helicopter crashed in Upper Khevsureti, Georgia, ten years ago. Although it seems to be useless, a family occupies the rusty wreck, cows find a shelter, and children set up their private playground in it. In a land without electric cables and modern buildings, the ruined helicopter turned out to be unique and precious. Filmed through the wrecked «eyes» of the helicopter, this observational documentary tells a story of the eldest, middle and youngest Ardoteli being exposed to just one piece of civilization.
