Synopsis: 

Inspired by co-director Nana Ekvtimishvili’s childhood experiences in the newly independent Georgia of the early ’90s, In Bloom offers vivid and diverting portraits of 14-year-olds Natia (Mariam Bokeria) and Eka (Like Babluani), best friends who inhabit a dilapidated Tiblisi housing project and navigate a world of radical change, both personal and political.
