This is the story of about the life of the famous Armenian priest and musical composer, Bishop Komitas, who tragically went mad because of the horrors of the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923, committed by the Young Turks and the Ottoman Turkish Empire.
The aim of this film is to let the world see and learn about Bishop Komitas, his beautiful life and his later tragedy.
The film is intended as a reminder for us not to forget the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923 and the ensuing consequences of genocide that still haunts the Armenians and other nations around the world today.
