Content

An old Armenian family bible is the only thing sister and brother Anahid and Hrant manage to rescue when they are forced to flee from their hometown on the coast of the Black Sea. One hundred years later, in Yerevan, someone entrusts a bible to Helen, an art restorer. ‘Hrant doesn’t want to wake up,’ reads a note in the margins of one page. Helen immerses herself in the mysteries of the old book and modern Armenian life and falls in love. Shaken by what she learns about the country’s past and present, she sets off on a trip to the Black Sea coast and the land beyond Mount Ararat.
