1000 Könige

A Film by Bidzina Kanchaveli

Synopsis

1000 KINGS.
1000 people live encaged in an immense space and can only be distinguished from one another by their different social positions, as in a beehive. The inhabitants’ only goal is to produce light. But only one of them has this ability. For this he is admired and exploited, until he makes a fatal decision.
