Zhora, 78-years-old, and Knyaz, 77-years-old, were once the most celebrated tightrope dancers in Armenia. Today they are the only masters who can keep this art alive against the currents of contemporary society. Envious rivals throughout their lives, they now share the same hope – that the only remaining tightrope-student will continue their art. Hovsep, a 17-year-old orphan adopted by Zhora, has to decide whether to become the last tightrope dancer in a society that has abandoned both him and the art of tightrope dancing.
