Abkhazia may be an unrecognized political entity but the sense of patriotism there reaches deeply. Perched on the shores of the Black Sea, the former Georgian autonomous region used to be a holiday paradise for lucky Soviets, but palatial hotels now sit in post-Communist ruin. For Abkhazian Sports Minister Rafael, however, the future is bright. His optimism is as far-reaching as to believe that a mysterious international tournament might actually put his beloved motherland on the world’s radar; hence he does not mind his dear wife being a…. proud Russian opera singer. Natasha gave up her home and custody of her Russian daughter to take a chance on a new life. However, with problems appearing on the horizon, the optimistic prospects of the couple begin to tremble….. Through satire and socio-political comments Domino Effect delightfully reveals what a dreamer will do for love and country.
