Cardiologist Anna (Ariane Ascaride) discovers that her father (Marcel Bluwal) has a serious heart problem. In response, he skips surgery and disappears, leaving clues that he’s gone back to his native country – Armenia.

Anna, whose deceased mother was Italian, knows nothing about her Armenian background, having been at odds with her father for many years. But feeling a familial obligation, Anna sets out to bring him back for his operation, even though she doesn't speak the language. Did her father know what just one week in Armenia would do to Anna?
