Synopsis

The neutral line, which separates the borders between Armenia and Turkey, has always been the main source of the stones meant for the construction of Armenian churches. The jug fractures in an archeologist's hands reminds of separated parts of Armenia, the wholeness of which he tries to restore in his dreams. In a real life he confronts with old Arusyak, a woman who reveals the real Armenia to him, which is the land where stone becomes bread and bread becomes Faith.
