The film tells the story of the fate of people who lost their relatives and friends as a result of genocide committed March 31, 1918 in Guba by Armenian dashnaks, and who were living witnesses of those terrible events. During the massacre of civilians many Azerbaijanis were brutally killed. Many of those who lost their relatives during these events could not even find their graves.
