1992: Nika (Niko Tavadze), an out of work film director gets a chance to escape Tiflis, the Georgian capital ravaged by civil war. The Berlin zoo has invited him and a former stuntman, Toma (Bogdan Benyuk), to accompany Chola, the destroyed film studio’s brown bear on a long journey to Germany. A dangerous and adventurous road movie then begins. Nika will fulfill – in the most surrealistic way – his long time dream of participating in The Berlinale Film Festival when he crosses paths with the famous french filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jannaud (Georges Corraface) and Sonya, his estranged wife (Josephine de la Baume).
