Synopsis

The testimony of an Armenian born Swiss citizen, Sarkis Shahinian, who has been struggling for many years for the recognition of the Armenian genocide perpetrated on his people in 1915, when one-an-a-half million Armenians were deported and slain by the "Young Turks" regime. The truth of the genocide continues to be denied by the political authorities in Ankara, and such stubbornness generates an obsessive thirst for justice and truth for the descendants of the victims.
