An Armenian medical student, an artist and a worldly American journalist form a love triangle amid the chaos of the First World War, in this epic romance from director Terry George.
A humble Armenian apothecary, Mikael, leaves his village in southern Anatolia to study medicine in the capital. Mikael has betrothed himself to a village girl in order to bankroll his studies with her dowry. His mother Marta warns him not to marry for money, but Mikael feels confident that, with time, he and his wife-to-be will come to love each other.
But that is before Mikael meets Ana. Graceful, Paris-educated, and talented at both drawing and dance, Ana seems the girl of Mikael's dreams. But Mikael is determined to keep his promise. What's more, Ana is already in a relationship with Chris, a worldly American photo-journalist. These three souls are swept up in a drama greater than any of them could have imagined when the Ottoman Empire joins the Central Powers and widespread violence begins.
As he did with Hotel Rwanda, director Terry George superbly balances the intimate with the political. None of his central characters are villains, but all of them are caught up in an ordeal that will test their mettle and force them to decide which promises they need to keep.
