Carefree young tourists Alex and Nica (Gael García Bernal and Hani Furstenberg) spend the summer before their wedding backpacking across the Caucasus Mountains with a local guide. They trek through the majestic wilderness, playing games and sharing stories, until a sudden split-second misstep threatens to tear the couple apart. Loktev’s follow-up to IFC Center hit Day Night Day Night is another tense, riveting account of how the smallest decisions can have the most explosive impact.

“A film you will never forget… Loktev is one of the most radical, intelligent and talented filmmakers now at work.” – David Thomson, The New Republic

NR, 113 Minutes

"Breathtaking… a strikingly successful piece of daring."
