War in Georgia, Abkhazia region 1992: local Abkhaz are fighting to break free from Georgia. A rural village in Abkhazia has become deserted as almost everyone has returned to their homeland. Only 2 men have stayed, Ivo and his friend Margus. Margus will leave as soon as he has harvested his crop of tangerines. Ivo, a carpenter, is attempting to make enough wooden crates to hold all the unpicked tangerines. In a bloody conflict in their miniature village, wounded men are left behind and Ivo is forced to take them in. But they are from opposite sides of the war. This is a touching anti-war story about Estonians who find themselves in the middle of someone else's war. How do they handle it? How do the enemies act under third-party roof?
