Inhalt

On the Edge of Time - Male Domains in the Caucasus

A journey through everyday life in far off, tough male domains, which at the same time is an excursion into Caucasian history. In Moscow the people of the Caucasus are often called "the Blacks" and are thought of as having a dark and mysterious soul.

Nevertheless, it′s the "soft center" of these "hard men" which gradually gains the upper hand in this film. Broken dreams, a lack of future prospects. And, of course, it′s not just the men who have to assert themselves in this rough post-Soviet world.
Whether in the almost mediaeval village of Ushguli in Svaneti, on oil rigs in the Caspian Sea, in the Koran school of a village in the northern Caucasus or in a home for the blind on Georgia′s Black Sea coast - everywhere we find traces of the bygone Soviet days.
