A touching movie about an Armenian family during and after the genocide of 1915
8 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Turks say it never happened , they even imply that the Armenians are the ones who committed that atrocity against the turkish , The truth is until now denied but many people recognize it so do many countries .

It's a story about a boy and his family , how his surroundings were able to remain , in a foreign country among foreign people how they managed to make a place for themselves and were able to survive . It is a human story that shows a glimpse of the horrifying things that happened , but mostly it is a story about survival , re_birth , trying to make a new life , and carrying on with a legacy : the fact of being Armenian .
