The Aviatrix of Kazbek
During the second world war, on the island of Texel, Marie dreams of mountains. She loves dancing, but the village community expects her to behave. She would like to be an independent woman, but being the only girl in a large family she can hardly come by. It is only when she meets Georgian Goga and Irakli that she breaks away from the restricting and suffocating reality by learning to trust on her fantasy.
The Aviatrix of Kazbek is a modern, universal tale of three young people whose lives come together through the extremities of war.
