A psychologist is tasked with taking two young patients to a psychiatric hospital in writer/director Marija Kavtaradze’s unconventional, gently comedic road movie. One is struggling with bipolar disorder, another coming to terms with a suicide attempt - but their carer, too, has her own difficulties. Lessons are learned and secrets shared along the way in this comedy that nevertheless reveals moving truths. What emerges is a touching and wise account of mental illness. 

By turns shocking and sad, a difficult subject is leavened by a trio of superb performances.
