In 1999, a young student of fine arts in Tbilisi falls in love with a French war photographer and decides to follow her to the front in Chechnya. Like most Georgians, this young student gets his information on the brutal war in the neighboring country through the Russian media. Parachuted into the middle of the fighting, he joins a group of reporters risking their lives to cover the brutal conflict. Ten years later, he wants to know how this experience affected their lives. See you in Chechnya is a deeply personal film about war and what it does to those involved.
