Beginning

Director Dea Kulumbegashvili follows her two acclaimed Cannes-selected shorts with a powerful and impressive feature debut.
In a sleepy provincial town, a Jehovah’s Witness community is attacked by an extremist group. In the midst of this conflict, the familiar world of Yana, the wife of the community leader, slowly crumbles. Yana’s inner discontent grows as she struggles to make sense of her desires.
