Turchia, 1915. In una cittadina vive la benestante famiglia armena degli Avakian. Nel giorno in cui vengono colpiti dal lutto per la morte del patriarca anche il generale Arkan, capo della guarnigione turca, è presente alle esequie. È il segno di un rapporto, se non di amicizia, di reciproco rispetto tra le due comunità. Ma i Giovani Turchi hanno già pronto un piano per creare la Grande Turchia in cui non ci sarà posto per i ricchi e traditori Armeni. Nessuna mediazione si rivela possibile. Dalla capitale partono per ogni dove gruppi di militari con l'ordine di uccidere sul posto i maschi (di qualunque età essi siano) e di deportare le donne e le bambine per poi massacrarle nei pressi di Aleppo. La famiglia Avakian viene smembrata e la giovane e vitale Nunik farà di tutto per salvaguardare la vita delle più piccole

Restless in her appetites and inner turmoil, she meets a young student named Andrea (Federico Pitzalis) and a passionate affair quickly ensues.
