About the girl Maya Chikoriko, her grandmother and a mischievous little mouse named Sandala. Based partly on Georgian folk tales.




I think Samsonadze's films were interesting in the 1970s but get noticeably worse as the 1980s go on (was it a general tendency of Georgia-Film as a whole?). The art style becomes cruder and the animation less smooth (in general, it seems to become more amateurish, like when the studio was just starting out in the 1930s and 1940s).
