1943. Turkey is working with Nazi Germany and using similarly brutal methods against members of the opposition. Aram, an Armenian dissident, painter and poet, life in Istanbul is growing more dangerous by the day. He flees to the Soviet Union border, where Mikhail and his young wife Mereyem give him shelter.
