The Armenian genocide in 1915 provides the background to the story of the Avakians, a well-to-do Armenian family, as they prepare for the homecoming of family members from abroad. But the planned family reunion never takes place: the men are murdered and the women deported on a forced march. However, the women find a protector in a young Turkish officer who has fallen in love with one of the Avakian daughters.
