Tbilisi, capital of Georgia. In the central avenue of the city two worlds, divided by 20 steps, exist in parallel. A protest rally is taking place on the top of the passage, meanwhile, underground, in the passage, hopeless people have found their shelter, living by dog-eat-dog rules and spend their days in the passage earning their living. They are terrorized by brute force. 11- year-old VASKA, son of a hooker, is the only one to try to overcome the 20 stone steps.
