"1992. The Abkhazia region wants to separate from Georgia and war breaks out between the Georgian army and the separatists. Most of the Estonians living in Abkhazia flee the combat region, but Ivo insists on staying behind and helping his neighbor pick the tangerines that have ripened in his orchard. The war reaches them quickly and after some fire exchanges at their doorstep, Ivo takes in two serious casualties: a Georgian and a Chechen. Only their critical condition keeps them from slitting each other’s throats. While the war rages outside, the two sworn enemies recover and are forced to recognize each other’s existence."
