Recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1968, the Japanese novelist Yasunari Kawabata felt the essence of his art was to be found not in his longer works but in a series of short stories―which he called "Palm-of-the-Hand Stories"―written over the span of his career. The stories on love, death, faith and the passage of time, demonstrate the range and complexity of a true master of short fiction.
The young actors from Shota Rustaveli Theatre and Film University of Georgia under the direction of Data Tavadze present philosophical meditation, insightful, delicate, performance with full sense of tragedy. One act performance creates an uninterrupted, minimalistic flow of narration on love, death and hope, where voice, movement and feelings are entangled.
