Blackout
Merry was a victim of the 1992 war in Abkhazia. Her brother and her 53-year-old husband were both murdered by Abkhaz separatist forces. With a wounded leg, she escaped and hid in a forest for two weeks. At the end of the war, separatists decided to empty Abkhazia of Georgians, transporting them away in trucks. Merry joined this group and, after traveling a long way, she reached her new home in Tskaltubo. Since then, she has lived alone in a small room inside a huge abandoned building. Years ago, during the era of the Soviet Union, it had been a famous luxury sanitorium.

كانت ميري ضحية حرب 1992 في أبخازيا. وقّع شقيقها وزوجها البالغ من العمر 53 عاماً ضحية القوات الانفصالية الأبخازية. هربت بساقها المصابة واختبأت في غابة على مدى أسبوعين. في نهاية الحرب، قرر الانفصاليون إفراغ أبخازيا من الجورجيين فكانوا يضعونهم في الشاحنات ليتمّ نقلهم بعيداً. انضمت ميري إلى المجموعة وبعد مشقة رحلةٍ طويلة، وصلت إلى مسكنها الجديد في تسكالتوبو. ومنذ ذلك الوقت، عاشت بمفردها في غرفةٍ صغيرة داخل مبنى كبيرٍ مهجور كان لسنوات مصحةً عقلية فاخرة وشهيرة في عهد الاتحاد السوفياتي.
