Newlyweds Anna and Mathieu make the decision to explore Mathieu's Armenian roots by honeymooning in Turkey, and get a crash course in revisionist history while learning why a troubling number of Turks completely deny the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Meanwhile, a compelling mix of interviews, animation, important documents, and historical footage help to highlight the many reasons the Turks have for taking such a bold and defiant stance on the matter.
