SYNOPSIS

The film is an experiment. An apolitical film about a political event. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1988, Armenia has entered a new era of democracy after the independence movement  and the victory of the Karabakh war. There was a  terrorist attack on parliament in 1998. In 2008, there was a nationwide movement, which ended with the murder of ten people. In 2018, people finally stood up again. There was a decisive novelty. Everyone who had a smartphone was a cameraman. The film is based entirely on authentic footage shot by these willing cameramen.
