Armen, Dogukan, Yasar and Nazli are Turks and Kurdes. However a discovery changed their lives: they are also Armenian. Their grandparents survived the genocide in 1915, and were all assimilated, converted to Islam and forgotten. Today, after a century of fear and silence, this history is reappearing. Turkey, the Legacy of Silence is a voyage through the inner workings of identity and negationnism.
