Should a monument to Stalin be left in the nunnery’s yard? The main question of the film became the cause of a conflict among the population in a little Georgian village. The 7th-century nunnery at the Savior’s Temple at one side, and the leader’s monument on the other: is it possible for them to co-exist? How did the church become a shelter for the leader whose name was associated with the fight against religion? What kind of ideological conflicts are typical for 21st-century Georgia? The authors of the film are looking for answers to these questions.
