After marrying Mathew, Anna ( of Polish origin) inherited a name which has historical meaning. An Armenian name with Turkish intonations which permitted Garabed , the grandfather of Mathew, to escape the 1915 genocide.For their honeymoon they went to Turkey. With camera in hand, they traced the footsteps of Garabed, they are determined to learn more about Mathew's Armenian origins.A voyage which brings them to the heart of East Anatolia, cradle of the Armenian civilization, which has lived in these lands for more than three thousand years, and of which all traces seem to have disappeared. A road trip across the country mixing Animation, investigative film and historic documentary to report a sad confirmation:Tour guides, archaeological museum directors, historians, economists, and day guides tell a hallucinating story which has lasted more than 70 years.A State denial which has become an institution in itself , has rewrote the history books pretending that there was a genocide, but a genocide committed by the Armenians against the Turks.A painful but necessary proof to expose denial : a criminal's rhetoric to show that he is not guilty.
