In 1915, an estimated 1.5 million Armenians were killed by the Ottoman Turks in what historians call the first genocide of the 20th century. In 2015, a Turkish woman discovers that her great grandmother was a survivor of the Armenian Genocide. This documentary follows Maya as she goes to Armenia to take part in the 100th commemoration of the genocide. Her conflicted identity embodies the unresolved struggle between the two nations: one that suffers and the other that denies.
