Don't Tell Me the Boy Was Mad


Berlin, 1921. Talaat Pacha, the man responsible for the Armenian genocide, is executed in the street by Soghomon Thelirian, who gets arrested. During the trial he gives testimony of the first genocide of the 20th century, during which his whole family was killed, together with hundreds of thousands of others. The jury finds him not guilty. Sixty years later in Marseille. Disgusted by the fact that the genocide of his people is still not recognized by the Turkish authorities and that Armenians still are oppressed, Aram decides to join the Armenian Liberation Army. In Paris, his first attack accidentally injures Gilles Tessier, who’s life is ruined in consequence. While Aram continues his fight in Beirut, haunted by his acts, his mother makes contact with Gilles.
