Logline: For the first time in over a decade ago, the passionate and impulsive Nia(32) and her pragmatic Dutch husband Philip return to her native village high in the mountains of Georgia. There she has a warm reunion with her older sister Tamara, who owns a children’s sanatorium inside a black salt mine. But without warning the sister suddenly leaves, forcing  Nia to run the sanatorium, but also to take care of the mysterious, blind boy Ilja, who spends his days underground. The mine turns out to harbour secrets that gradually but profoundly change the characters' outlook on life.
