Gor is trying to fly to Armenia from Moscow to search for his family stuck at the very epicentre of the earthquake. Once there, Gor rushes through what's left from the town in search of his small house. On his way, he meets various characters, each one of them with his or her personal tragedy and challenge. The locals strive to find their loved ones - alive or dead, where dead is almost as good as alive because it means that people can get a proper burial. Medics try to help those who survived, working day and night despite the shortage of the medicaments and performing surgeries with the materials on hand. Soldiers and volunteers risk their lives to clear the debris. As Gor doesn't give up looking for his family, his wife and small daughter are still alive under the debris. But as long as there is love, there is hope.

A historic event treated with dignity and honesty
This film revolves around the massive earth quake that hit the Armenian town of Spitak. It is an excellent depiction and considering the subject matter was handled very well. The acting was superb and it reminded me in the finest way of a Ron Howard film with all the attention to detail.
It's an historic event handled so well. I understand that this is winning a lot of awards
