Edward Saroyan, a Canadian filmmaker of Armenian descent, sets out to explore his heritage by directing a film about the Siege of Van that led to the genocide of over one million Armenians in 1915. Twenty-one-year-old Raffi is sent to Turkey to shoot background footage for the film, and what begins as a search for clues becomes a determined quest for answers across a vast and ancient terrain of deception, denial, fact, and fears.
