The Cut

The Cut

Mardin, 1915. One night, the Turkish police round up all the Armenian
men in the city, including the young blacksmith, Nazaret Manoogian, who
is separated from his family. Years later, after managing to survive the
horrors of the genocide, he hears that his two daughters are also still
alive. He starts searching for them: from the Mesopotamian deserts and
Havana to the barren and desolate prairies of North Dakota.

He encounters a range of very different people on his way: angelic and kind-hearted characters, but also the devil incarnate.
