Synopsis: When a country has a long history sandwiched between Russia and its empires to the north and Turkey and its empires to the south, the people instinctively know the value of independence, freedom and how to enjoy peaceful times. This series explores Georgia's complex relationship with its former imperial ruler, its solidarity with Ukraine, and its determination to reinvent itself and join the European community.
