The film is a story about the unique place which is Nagorno-Karabakh, a country that is not formally recognized by the international community and has been in a state of armed ceasefire in the ongoing war of Armenia with Azerbaijan for years. The film is a portrait of the Armenian community in Nagorno-Karabakh, which lives in the shadow of war, where on the one hand ordinary people desperately seek normality, and on the other hand they display extraordinary patriotism and fight with weapons in both young boys and old men as soon as danger arises. It is the clash of two worlds: Armenia, the oldest Christian country with Muslim Azerbaijan.
