Merry is one of the victims of the war in Abkhazia, in 1992. 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 by 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, in the Soviet Union era, it had been a famous and luxury sanitarium.
