A happily engaged couple (Gael García Bernal, Hani Furstenberg) arrives in the Caucasus Mountains for a backpacking trip, engaging a villager (Bidzina Gujabidze) to act as a guide. The idyllic journey meets with a brief, violent interruption from predatory locals, and the choices made in that moment stand to threaten the pair’s future together, in this thoughtful effort inspired by Hemingway’s “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber.”
