THE BOY FROM GEORGIA

 

Country of co-production: Republic of Georgia Production

In THE BOY FROM GEORGIA, directed and produced by Aimara Reques, Datuna is a charismatic former street child in need of a lifesaving operation. His magnetic personality has drawn aid to his plight in the form of Edinburgh based philanthropist Madge. Eventually Datuna travels to Scotland with his Georgian carers. Two cultures combine and collide on the unpredictable journey to ensure Datuna receives the care and treatment he needs. This is a poignant story that reveals the human capacity to fight poor odds and the vulnerability in daring to care. Datuna is now a successful basketball player in Scotland, his being named in the Scotland squad for the 2017 School games. He has just joined the St. Mirren Warriors for a promising 2017-2018 season.
