AND THEN WE DANCED

Passionate about dance, young Merab (Levan Gelbakhiani) has trained at the National Georgian Dance Ensemble since childhood. His sole aim in life is to join the Main Dance Ensemble, break free from the confines of Georgian society and travel the world. When a dancer in the main ensemble is disgraced and his place becomes available, Merab’s ambitions finally feel within reach.
When Irakli (Bachi Valishvili), a virile, talented male dancer unexpectedly joins his group, Merab fears the newcomer is the only thing standing between him and his dreams. As they compete, Irakli becomes both Merab’s fiercest rival and strongest desire, a desire that, in conservative Georgian society, threatens to throw his dance career, livelihood and family into turmoil.
