The pear tree Luka wants to leave his grandson is a rare tree that grows slowly and whose purchase will force them to look far from home. The journey they undertake is full of unexpected adventures, and it may not achieve the desired botanical success, but they’ll both have enough to collect along the way—aside from songs whose learning is crucial. Ramaz Chikhikvadze was 44 years old when he played this memorable grandfather.
