Buried in the heart of Tbilisi, Georgia, sits a Soviet era Ritz Carlton. Equal parts Grand Budapest Hotel and The Shining, Hotel Georgia is a nearly abandoned hotel visited by just a handful of guests per year and maintained by 3 employees, Larissa, Nanna and Zia, all of whom hold IDP (Internally Displaced Person) status from the Abkhazia Conflict in 1993. Each woman carries with her a story of internalized trauma and a learned method of survival. From being abandoned by their husbands, to being forced to fight in the war, to bouncing from one apartment to the next trying to subsist as an aging woman in an unfamiliar city, these three characters translate a story far beyond their own experience.
