Tangerines, an Estonian-Georgian film which carries a pacifist message, examines wartime realities regarding the meaning of how to be human. It was nominated for the several awards including Best Foreign Language Film for both the Oscar and Golden Globe Awards. Ivo, a tangerine farmer in a rural village of Ethnic Estonians in Abkhazia, Georgia, has not fled for Estonia after the outbreak of the 1992-1993 War in Abkhazia. After nearby fighting between Chechen and Georgian troops, two gravely wounded soldiers, one from each side, arrive at his home, and Ivo brings agrees to nurse them back to health. A great deal of tension ensues between the two enemies as they begin to recover. Slowly, the two begin to recognize the humanity and honor in each other.
