Hier sind Löwen

1915: The old Bible of an Armenian family on the Black Sea coast is the only thing left to the siblings Anahid and Hrant as they flee. One hundred years later in Yerevan, a Bible is entrusted to the restorer Helen. “Hrant doesn’t want to wake up,” someone has scrawled in the margin of a page. Helen delves into the riddles of the ancient book, into modern Armenia and into a story of exile and loss. Of pain that still resonates generations later. She sets off on a journey to the Black Sea coast and the other side of Mount Ararat.
