Starring Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Charlotte le Bon (The Walk) and Christian Bale (The Fighter).
“Oscar Isaac plays Michael Boghosian, a medical student determined to bring modern medicine back to Siroun, his ancestral village in Southern Turkey. There, Turkish Muslims and Armenian Christians have lived side by side for centuries. Christian Bale’s character in the film is a photojournalist named Chris Myers, arrived only partly to cover geo-politics. He is mesmerized by an Armenian artist named Ana (Charlotte le Bon) that he accompanied from Paris after her father’s sudden death.
A romantic rivalry explodes between the two men as Michael meets Ana and their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction, all as the local landscape is changing as the Turks join the war on the German side, turning the Empire violent against its ethnic minorities. The characters have conflicts, but must all find a way to survive.”
