The Other Bank tells a story of a little boy, refugee from Abkhazia, who has lost everything after the civil war and who, at his twelve, decides to go back to his war-ravaged region and find his father.

This is a road movie with the main character traveling from one end of the country to another. Production process was complicated in terms of planning and arranging big number of shooting locations separated from each other. The whole crew moving from one shooting place to another with an equipment and multiple actors playing in different small episodes were quite a big challenge for us.
