    • Synopsis
    • A group of young people from Armenia and Turkey meet in two cities for a reconciliation project. First, they search the traces of Armenian life in Mush, in southeastern Turkey. Then, they explore the memory of the people whose ancestors were deported from Mush in 1915 and settled near Gyumri, Armenia. During their explorations friendships develop but that involves them questioning the notions of friendship and trust as well as the issues of memory, history, genocide, denial and the demand for the truth.
      This film depicts on how the discourses of conflict and reconciliation are being discussed with passion, compassion, resentment, distrust or simply with pure youthful joy.
