In his heyday, says Ramin, he was a famous wrestler who once won seven matches in 55 seconds. Today at age 75, he lives in Kvareli, East Georgia and except for a few loyal friends his fans have forgotten his existence. His main opponent is loneliness, and he decides to go to a distant village to seek out a lost love of his youth whose full name he does not even remember any more. Director Audrius Stonys accompanies Ramin on his journey, immersing himself in the man’s memories and the beautiful East Georgian landscape. Precise cinematography transforms everyday situations into an artistic composition. The film offers viewers an inspirational, meditative look at a man whose body may be old, but his spirit is young and full of life.
