Nino, a woman in her 40s, led a comfortable life in the Soviet Union, but in modern Georgia she finds it hard to keep up with the changes. Nino resolves to the most wide-spread practice of getting a mortgage loan at high interest. Little by little she gets deeper into debts, which becomes a vicious circle she cannot escape.

Nino’s story is one among 172 300 families, who lost their abode as a result of mortgage loans in 2009-2013. The number of the households makes 14% of Georgia’s population.
