Filmmaker Suzanne Khardalian makes a journey into her own family's history to investigate the terrible truth behind her grandmother's odd tattoos and, in the process, unveils the story of the Armenian women driven out of Ottoman Turkey during the First World War.

During the First World War, millions of Armenians were forced out of their homes in the then Ottoman empire, into the deserts of Syria and Iraq.

More than a million people died in what Armenians describe as a genocide, although Turkey rejects this accusation.

Everybody in the family seemed to know the story, but no-one ever spoke about it.
