The oldest Christian nation of the world living in the diaspora celebrates the Genocide Remembrance Day on 24 April. On this day in 1915 the Turkish government issued an order to arrest the members of Armenian intelligentsia, which was the starting point of the mass extermination of this nation in the Ottoman Empire. One of the consequences of these events was the disappearance of the Armenian monodic church singing tradition. Aram and Virginia Kerovpyan, musicians and representatives of the French diaspora, together with a group of actors from the Zar Theatre from Wrocław go to Anatolia to look for the traces of the forgotten tradition of their ancestors.
