One hundred years after the Armenian Genocide, a mother must explain this troubled history to her daughter. But how does one explain inhuman cruelty to innocence itself? And by what right does one transmit righteous anger to a child of a new century, of a different world?

The mother must examine her own heritage, her obligation to it and to her child. This search leads to the lost story of her great-grandmother Ferideh, whose survival of the Genocide will teach her lessons more profound even than those of redemption and endurance.

Mixing theater, dance, and a soundtrack inspired by Armenian traditional music, and further brought to life by the live drawing of painter Kevork Mourad, this multi-disciplinary creation is the poetic journey of a woman in quest of her history, in quest of meaning, in quest of a lost spring…
