Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This Georgian film completed production in 1980, but was not released until 1987. It concerns the interactions between a diverse host of second-class train passengers on a crowded overnight voyage to Soviet Georgia. Some people are jammed into the seats, while others have managed to insert themselves into the overhead bunks. The main entertainment is being provided by a suave blond man who claims to be an actor who has traveled the world. He holds the majority of the passengers spellbound with his colorful stories. However, one rough-looking gentleman, who has a tame sparrow traveling with him under his coat, disbelieves the so-called actor and says so. One thing leads to another and the two are soon embroiled in a fistfight.
