On her 52nd birthday, literature teacher Manana realises just how unsatisfying her life is. She shares a small apartment with three generations of her family. Demands are constantly made on her, no one ever asks her what she wants. Neither her husband Soso, her mother Lamara, nor her married daughter Nino. Manana promptly moves out. Without offering any explanation. The family is shocked: What will people say? Manana’s brother blatantly threatens her. In her new apartment, Manana finally has space to breathe freely. For the first time in her life, she is on her own.
