The film is an ode dedicated to the rivalry between men and nature. A powerful man buys some 100-year-old trees, as tall as 15-floor buildings to excavate them along the Georgian coastline and collect them in his private garden. The route to the garden lies through villages, over hills and the Black Sea. As the film accompanies this unique process, it portrays the needs and values of today's Georgian society and reflects on the theme of forced migration, where "uprooting" is more than a metaphor.
