Synopsis

The film closely follows Sako Arian, A Lebanese Armenian modernist poet who embarks onto a journey that has been delayed for a century; the return to his ancestral city of Istanbul, where his cultural and literally roots are found. Sako tours the old streets of Istanbul once populated by Armenians, the ancient cemeteries and the poets buried in them, the old churches and more than a century old high school. He meets the young and the old, the famed and the humble, Armenians and Turks, listens to their stories, their opinions, he laughs and shares food with them.
