Better Than Dog – The story of a unique Georgian musician – Gia Iashvili, who makes music for the sake of creating and remains little-known in his own country. The film is an uncompromising account on the music of The Sky Diving Penguins (Gia’s Band) and the anecdote of the band’s British career cut short a decade ago. We travel through on day in the life of Gia Iashvili and share a close look at his joys, his pains and the admirable relationship with his son.
