Through the amazing, heartfelt, and sometimes hilarious story of Mikhail, the film shows the journey of The Chosen Ones. It collects each character’s personal narrative and artfully weaves them together around the main protagonist. Although each story is deeply personal, and the struggles of The Chosen Ones are defined by their lives in Armenia, the larger issues addressed by the film are much more universal. In every country, every city, and every community people grow old and need more care and attention. Mikhail and his friends take the first steps and in the sunset of their lives, finally start to live a full life.
