Etero is 48, lives in a sleepy Georgian village and sells washing powder and cosmetics in a dusty colonial. The villagers look at her as a suspicious phenomenon. Etero prefers solitude. She loves the cakes, the river and the blackberries that have been her parents, classmates, friends and lovers all her life. She has never married, never known a man, never desired one. But everything turns upside down when she unexpectedly falls for the married Murman… Mutual love is the promise of new happiness. But is it really worth leaving her old one for him?
