Playing Shylock

The film is about a young student director, a boy who tries to convince a famous actress to play the lead role in his play. The play is based on documentary facts, which tells about the murder of 3 people that happened in Georgia in 2015-2017. The murders are committed on the basis of hatred. The student tries to convince the actress that the topic is actual and modern theater needs to talk about the problems of the present and not to play "Merchant of Venice" every day... The film shows the indifference towards various minorities, seen through the eyes of a young person.
