During the 1915 genocide, Armenians were murdered or forced on death marches through the desert, and disappeared from virtually all Turkish villages. All, except one, where the residents defended themselves. In 2009, producer, Robert Davidian traveled to Vakifli, which is, even today, the only all-Armenian village left in Turkey.
