SEN WUJKA VAKHO
In an abandoned village located in the high mountains of Kazbegi lives an elderly man, Vakho. The man leads a humble life, and his only companions are the goats, whose feeding has become a daily ritual. The protagonist is haunted by the memory of a prophetic dream, foreshadowing tragic events for which the protagonist punishes himself with isolation.
