Merab has lived for Georgian dance since his early youth and trains with his partner Mary in the National Ensemble of Tbilisi. Apart from daily ballet lessons and occasional dates with Mary, he has hardly any time for himself, especially when he has to take care of his chaotic brother. But his world falls apart when the charismatic Irakli joins the ensemble. Not only does he become Merab's biggest rival for a permanent position, but he also awakens Merab’s sexual desire. Levan Akin develops the story in a field of tension of hardness and devotion, passion and mercilessness against the background of a society marked by homophobia.
Director's Biography:Akin is Swedish with Georgian roots (1979*). After various works for Swedish television, ALS WIR TANZTEN is his first film in the Georgian Language.
