Obinna and Afame are two Nigerians stranded in Georgia. Together, they navigate the sleeping city of Tbilisi after a long night out. As day breaks, the true colours of their ambiguous affection begin to show and they start to find solace, in spite of the hostile environment surrounding them.

Elene Naveriani was born in 1985 in Tbilisi, Georgia. She studied Monumental Painting at the Tbilisi State Academy of Art, after which she obtained an MA in Critical Curatorial Cybermedia in 2011 and a BA in Cinema in 2014 from the Geneva School of Art and Design.
