Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

This unusual musical comedy uses traditional Georgian music and dance and also incorporates some elements from European and American musicals. In the city of Tblisis, Georgia, there exists the bohemian neighborhood of Veriski which teems with artists. There lives Vardo (Sofiko Chiaureli), a laundress who is in love with Pavie (Buba Kikabidze). Pavie is a young widower with girls to raise. Vardo aspires to be a good stepmother to Maro and Tamro, both lovely girls. The children want to study dancing, and Vardo works very hard to make it possible.
