    A Fold in My Blanket is a drama set in a small Georgian town in the near future. The film uses a "thriller plot" that is interwoven with dreamlike narrative elements and tells the story of a young man, Dmitrij, and his quest to escape the conformity of society.

The project was pitched at CineMart 2010 in Rotterdam. Els Vandevorst, who has coproduced films like Winter in Wartime, Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, The Aviatrix of Kazbek and Adrienn Pál (winner of the FNE Visegrad coproduction prize), acts as an executive producer of the project and securing the European Postproduction Funds for the film.

    A Fold in My Blanket will be released in 2012.
