This picture refers to the events of 1983, when the Georgian terrorists — representatives of the Golden youth, children of intellectuals, tried to hijack a plane to fly to Turkey. The result of a failed escape, seven people were killed: pilots, flight attendant, several passengers, the terrorists. The surviving criminals were shot by sentence of the court, with the exception of 19-year-old Tinatin Petviashvili, which received a punishment of 14 years ‘ imprisonment, of which she served eight.

«What happened was horrible. And we are not looking for our heroes justify, commented in an interview with RIA Novosti Director Rezo Gigineishvili. We’re trying to understand what exactly was their history with the aircraft. This film is our thinking that give rise to artificial constraints such as the lack of a natural human right to movement».

«At trial, one of the characters says, «No freedom is not worth a human life». And so, — says Vladislav opelyants. I can’t understand how in the name of freedom to kill and imprison others. But at the same time I feel sorry for them, it was a confused young guys. Of the USSR there have been various attempts to escape. It was the failed hijacking that resulted in massive casualties. The storming of the military were also conducted incorrectly. Nobody wanted, it was a stupid coincidence. They even have grenade was not fighting. But they had real guns, they killed people. And, of course, in this story plays a big role, conflict of generations. You know, I recently had a child, and I don’t want him to be in a situation of choice between freedom and love of parents.»
