Tsuna and Tsrutsuna are two country mice in love. An old local baron kidnaps Tsuna and puts an end to their happiness. Tsrutsuna is desperate and thinks about giving up on life, but help comes from allies who will challenge the kidnapper. The animation films by self-taught actor and director Arkadi Khintibidze (1989-1963) are deeply rooted in his country’s tradition and culture, and convey the spontaneity of the passionate man he always was.
