People tell stories. In Toronto, an art historian gives a lecture on Arshile Gorky (1904-1948), an Armenian painter who witnessed the genocide of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire. A director invites the historian to help him include Gorky's story in a film about the genocide and the Turkish attack on the city of Van. The historian's family is stressed: her son is in love with his stepsister, who blames the historian for her father's death. The daughter wants to review the death of her father and change this story. An aging customs agent tells his son about his long interview with the son of the historian, who returned with film canisters from Turkey. All stories are connected.
