Kakhi embarks on a journey from his home in the Republic of Georgia to visit his son Soso in the Russian-speaking neighborhood of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. There he finds him living in a shabby boarding house populated by a colorful group of fellow Georgian immigrants. Soso is not studying medicine, as Kakhi believed, but is working for a moving company and has accrued a $14,000 gambling debt to the Russian mob. Kakhi sets his mind to helping his hapless son out of his debt, leading to situations as often comic as they are dire.

"A gentle, naturalistic story of parental devotion and sacrificebalances rueful humor with genuine sweetness." -Alissa Simon, Variety
