Competing for the ‘Georgia Mother 2010’ prize, ten women are pushed to their limits…

Each of the contestants has her own reasons for entering: Gvantsa (Ia Sukhitashvili), a former child prodigy, is intent on the chance to perform again; Irina (Tamuna Bukhnikashvili) is desperate for the prize of a new apartment after being evicted. Their initial excitement about the glamour of a live show is soon dispelled, however, when the head of the jury demands more than they are willing to give up.
