Synopsis

1915: Armenian blacksmith Nazaret Manoogian lives in Mardin, north-eastern Mesopotamia, with his wife Rakel and their twin daughters Arsinée and Lucinée During World War I, the political winds turn and the minorities of the Ottoman Empire suddenly acquire enemy status. One night, Turkish gendarmes arrest Nazaret, his brother Hrant, and their brother-in-law Vahan, leaving behind Nazaret’s wife Rakel and the twin girls. The men are forced to work as road builders. Anyone who refuses will be shot. Anyone converting to Islam gets pardoned, an offer that few accept. The prisoners watch groups of old Armenians, women and children pass by while they work in the blazing heat. The gendarmes suddenly disappear one morning. But before Nazaret and the others manage to escape, they are arrested again by a crew of mercenaries and ex-convicts. Chained to one another, they are taken to a deep valley to be executed by sword and knife –in order to save bullets. Nazaret suffers a life-threatening cut to the neck, but survives.
