Although the historical and cultural heritage of Javakhk has survived until now, it is disappearing. The Armenian inscriptions and khachkars (cross stones) are being broken and destroyed, and the indigenous population migrates, taking along the oral stories and soon forgetting them. All these have been presented in the film by the inhabitants of Armenian villages of Javakhk: Gimbrda, Khorenya, Gandza, Heshtya, Sukhlis, Tsugrut.
