A sparsely-populated mountainous gorge is a mysterious place. Protected by mountains and forest all around, it looks as if it had been frozen in time: an old railway platform, wooden houses, wild nature. The old local train rattles around twice a day – the only mean of communication for most of the villagers. But when echoes of explosions reach the village, it becomes obvious that things are going to change here for good. A big black hole appears in the mountain as a sign that newcomers have arrived. Hundreds of Chinese settle in a remote Georgian village to build a modernised railway that will link China and Europe.
