On an Airbus 320-200, which left Paris with 150 passengers heading to Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia, you can feel everyone’s excitement. Armenians from Armenia, Armenians from France or elsewhere and French people related to Armenia are reunited in this modern Noah’s Ark. In the confined space of the plane, during the flight, passengers will share intimacy, souvenirs and fears. At a certain point, the fate of this functional human community is sealed due to an event, under the auspices of Mount Ararat.
