The Book of Lamentations is a masterpiece of Armenian medieval poetry, written by Grigor Narekatsi (Gregory of Narek) in the 10th century. This book, beloved by the Armenian people, is carried in all circumstances, even in the most tragic ones. Comparable to a wild ocean that pours its waves endlessly, it reveals inexhaustible flows of feelings and images through the pen and ink of its author. A thousand years later, this film attempts to pour a few drops of this tumultuous flood on us.
