In the Georgian countryside, Yana assists her husband, David, a preacher who takes care of a tiny congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. As the community falls victim to a brutal attack, a strange investigator bursts into the couple’s life, upsetting the fragile balance between them. An existential drama of rare psychological depth, Beginning is overflowing with ambitious mise-en-scene while maintaining an aura of uncertain mystery. Dea Kulumbegashvili’s talent and creative voice mark her as a talent to watch.
