In 2012, filmmaker Eric Baudelaire sent a letter to the Republic of Abkhazia, thinking it would never reach its destination. But the answer came and the director started a correspondence with Maxim Gvinjia at the time foreign minister of a country that doesn’t exist: it was never recognized by the international community. The film debates issues of identity, but also how the complex international geopolitics impacts the daily lives of the inhabitants of that country.
