This is a story of two poor young Georgian sisters Maya and Manana, working in a bride saloon, from dawn until darkness. Like many of their fellow Georgians, they were rejected by the Israeli society. Today, they are proud of their roots and have one desire - to revive the Georgian culture. They are committed to produce a performance of Georgian songs and dance and they rehearse their show every night. They will be the first Georgian women to put on their own show, and will have to deal with the patronizing attitude of male singers. Will they succeed?
