Nazareth was twelve years old, Lousaper still a newborn, when the Armenian genocide was perpetrated in 1915. The film traces the paths of their solitary peregrination throughout exile; from their village of Burunkişla to Beirut, passing through Cairo, Karantina and an orphanage in Saida before meeting again, years later, around a lunch table where they fell in love and decided to start a family.

Nazareth shut his eyes at the age of fifty -seven carrying away with him the last visions of the« old country».

His eyes are those of my father, which are today mine.
