    • Synopsis
    • Filmed in Yerevan, the drama depicts the lives of various individuals living in one apartment complex.
      In short, it is a film about survival. The period of time is the Armenian-Azerbadjanian war in the mid 1990’s. The situation is cruel and hard for the citizens of Yerevan. The need for food and electricity is dominating the international news from the city. Inside an abode in the centre of the city daily life goes on in spite of desparation. This is a down-to-earth sermon about the cruelty of wars, and the strength of humour, love, and community. No more war in the region, or elsewhere, is the pledge brought forth by the film.
