A Room of My Own

A Room of My Own

World premiere: Karlovy Vary IFF 2022 / Crystal Globe Competition

2021, Tbilisi, Georgia. Tina (24) is lost, broke and far from home. An act of infidelity has left her both ostracized by family and friends, and carrying the physical and emotional scars of her now imprisoned husband Datuna’s violent attack. 

Ready to start a new life, Tina waits for her boyfriend Beka to finish a job in another city. In the meantime, she rents a room from the free-spirited Megi (27) but, as Tina soon finds out, this apartment and its inhabitant will form an unlikely refuge from her trauma and ultimately help to open new doors.

A ROOM OF MY OWN is a story about moving out and moving on, set to a backdrop of transient millennial city life. Rural homebody and urban sophisticate, the two young protagonists are nothing if not worlds apart, yet the space they share will become a sanctuary for their blossoming friendship, an island unburdened by the patriarchal world outside.
