Synopsis
A group of 10 Georgian mothers -- five of whom belong to the poorest section of society -- take part in a beauty contest. The women are desperate to win a beauty contest as the main prize is an apartment and $25,000. Soon, it is exposed that the competition is a complete farce. The media and the show organizers are purposefully exploiting the misfortunes of the participants for commerce.
