It’s love at first sight when Lisa and Giorgi meet by chance on a street in the Georgian city of Kutaisi. Love strikes them so suddenly, they even forget to ask each other’s names. Before continuing on their way, they agree to meet the next day. Little do they know that an evil eye casts its spell on them. Will they manage to meet again? And if they do, will they know who they are? Life goes on as usual in their hometown, street dogs stray, the soccer world cup begins and a film crew on its quest to find true love might be what they need.

Writer and director Aleksandre Koberidze has hit a wonderful note in his second film What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? with the title perfectly capturing the film’s sense of place and realism mixed with a wide-eyed sense of magic and possibility.
