Michael (Oscar Isaac) is a humble Armenian medical student, who leaves his village of Siroun to study medicine in Constantinople. He then meets the beautiful Armenian artist Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), and the two bond over their shared heritage. However, Ana is in a relationship with American journalist Chris (Christian Bale).
