A poetic portrait of Giorgi Shakhsuvarian, an Armenian boxing coach from Tbilisi. Living and working in Belgium, he prepares a young boxer to become a European champion. Made out of a profound love for the man portrayed, the film weaves together the feeling of distance, a floating experience of time and space, and the choreography of boxing.
