Set in Abkhazia, a small Caucasian republic at the
shores of the Black Sea, Domino Effect is a love story
from a non existing state. In the aftermath of a civil
war, Rafael, a veteran and erstwhile sports minister
and Nathasha, a Russian opera singer, who gave up
her career and family to live with Rafael, struggle to
make their newly found love work. While Rafael is
busy organising the first World Domino Championship,
Natasha tries to build a new life for herself in an
environment that is not always welcoming.
