Dedicated to the poet Daniel Varoujan, this film is the longest Armenian documentary film ever made. By examining his poetry, the film is an attempt to understand the evolution of Armenian intellectual, literary and spiritual history from pagan times to the present day. The film proves the endurance of Varoujan's words in defiance of time, languages and geography.
