More than just a recounting of a horrendous time in history, this is a personal journey, a love story, from past to present showing how the stories in our past color the way we see our present and our future. An eloquent tale showing how the strength of the human spirit to continue on despite horrific circumstances, and, yet, at the same time, how easily it can be broken.

If you don't know the history behind the mass genocide of Armenians in 1915, you'll learn it from a point of view that I doubt you'd find in any textbook.
