Full description

A film version of a well-known Georgian folk-tale. The Suram Fortress is in a constant state of construction. That's because it's always crumbling just as they are about to complete it. Since the fortress will serve to defend the kingdom from foreign intruders, this is a serious problem. To solve this perplexing mystery, a young man visits a fortune teller who offers a startling proclamation: For the fortress to stand, someone must be buried inside it. Soon enough, the young man realizes that this person is him.
