About the play:
When Odette, a Rwandan-borne Canadian filmmaker, travels to Turkey to investigate stories of genocide and hidden identity, she interviews Sahana, an elderly Muslim woman who has devoted her life to assisting Armenian survivors. Sahana confesses a chilling secret to Odette – a secret that challenges a state of denial – a secret that Odette must promise to make public at any cost.
