The Tower was an iconic place in the Ksuisi village. This is where the kids would go when they skipped school, men gathered to have a drink, couples hid to kiss. After the Russo-Georgian war of 2008 the village was occupied by Russia, but the tower remained on the Georgian side. The locals were forced to leave and settle down in a special settlement for displaced people.

The film was made for the online platform 080808.ge which told stories of Russo-Georgian war.
