Apricot Groves
Armenia 80min, 2016
Language: Armenian /Subtitles: English

Aram, the Iranian Armenian youth who has immigrated to the US in childhood returns to Armenia for the first time to propose to an Armenian girlfriend whom he met and lived with in the US. Aram sees many cultural, religious, and national differences on the one-day trip, but harder obstacles are ahead.

De Iraans-Armeense Aram is in zijn jeugd geëmigreerd naar de Verenigde Staten. Nu keert hij voor het eerst terug naar Armenië om zijn Armeense vriendin, met wie hij in de Verenigde Staten samenwoonde, ten huwelijk te vragen. Aram komt onderweg in aanraking met diverse culturele, religieuze en nationale verschillen maar er wachten grotere hindernissen op hem.
