Mountain mist in the morning in a rural region of Georgia: people wake up, the landscape becomes visible, and voices peel from the soft, set sounds of the commencing day. A series of traditional songs performed in a collective forms the backbone of the film, which without any romantic glorification tells of a special form of many-voiced cooperation.
