This unsentimental coming-of-age drama is set in the capital of Georgia following the fall of the Soviet Union and focuses on the turbulent friendship between two 14-year-old girls in uncertain times. In Bloom tells the story of Tbilisi teens Eka and Natia, who both live in overcrowded family apartments, and lean on each other for support as war rages in Abkhazia. (AllMovie.com)
