In April 1915, authorities of the Ottoman empire began a series of actions - including massacres and forced marches - that have been seen as a concerted effort to eliminate its Armenian population. This has become known as the Armenian Genocide, though Turkey - which succeeded the old empire - has always denied this label. Director Atom Egoyan, an Egyptian-Armenian based in Canada, explores these tragic, still-contentious issues in this multi-layered drama, using the device of a film-within-a-film to show how hard it is to be objective about 'the truth'.
