After recovering from tuberculosis Mariam has a recurring nightmare about being kept high up in the mountains, in the middle of the forest in an old palace where outcasts live. The building is majestic but inhabitants are rejected from society. One day, Mariam goes to meet the secret community to overcome her fear. In becoming friends with the tuberculosis patients of Abastumani and sharing joy and pain with them, Mariam overcomes her fear. But Abastumani shares a forgotten story that was never told… The ghosts of the past reveal something much more sinister than Mariam’s nightmare, they expose the nightmare of a whole country.
