(Manushaka is Waiting for Me)
Author: Temur babluani
The Sun, The Moon and The Wheat Field by acclaimed film director Temur Babluani tells the story of an ordinary youngster living in Soviet Tbilisi, becoming an unfortunate victim of the injustices of life in the Soviet state.
It is hard to prove your innocence when criminals are threatening to kill you and there is no justice in your country; when for the prosecutor the main thing is to seal the record as ‘done’ and send the ‘guilty one’ to Siberia. It is even harder to spend half of your life in a Russian prison for a crime you never committed; to fight the deathly cold, tuberculosis and those – the prisoners or the guards – who dislike you and will kill you in a blink of an eye.
It will drive you crazy and leave you nearly unconscious but everything is bearable if you know that someone important is waiting for you outside.
