THIS IS WHERE THE SPIRITS TEND TO HANG OUT
The film focuses on oral histories of workers from Transmitter Station Number 5 - a secret settlement built by the KGB during the Soviet-rule of Georgia. Their statements tell of the shifting status of their settlement and its residents as The Cold War progressed and how the changing geopolitics affected and still affects their personal and work lives.
