On the evening of her 52nd birthday, literature teacher Manana unexpectedly announces to her family that she is leaving. She has been married for 30 years and lives in a three-bedroom flat in Tbilisi with her husband, parents, two children and her son-in-law. The members of her family represent three generations and are completely different from each other: Manana's husband Soso; their daughter Nino; Manana's son Lasha; Manana's mother Lamara, the pillar of the family who takes care of everybody; and Manana's father Otar. Initially, the family don't take Manana's decision seriously. But then she packs her suitcase and leaves. The family is shocked and incredulous: where is she going? Who upset her? She is past 'divorce age' after all, and has a good husband who doesn’t drink, take drugs or beat her.
