    • Synopsis
    • This feature length documentary follows the journey of Adrineh, who travels Back to Gürün nearly a hundred years after her grandfather fled the town as his family’s sole survivor of the 1915 Armenian Genocide. As we approach the centennial commemoration, this story uncovers the lasting impact of a “silenced” genocide—from the trauma passed down from generation to generation to the broken ties and closed borders between two nations—and one individual’s search for resolution.
