Through the testimony of 30 eyewitnesses, the film depicts the search for survivors of the Armenian Genocide of 1915, which was perpetuated by the Ottoman Turkish government. Causes of the genocide, in the context of Armenian and Turkish history, are discussed. Major sequences include: deportation orders of Armenians, reports by American missionaries and consuls, the treatment of orphaned children and their exile in the desert, forced conversion to Islam, loss of identity and secret telegrams. The viewer is taken from the waters of the legendary Euphrates River to the burning deserts of Syria, the final resting place of 1,500,000 Armenians who perished.
