This film is the first co-production of French and Armenian cinematographers. In this film Paradjanov unveils the multiple scenes of his films and their fragments. He recollects his past life, his childhood, in combination with his dreams and nightmares. Love, death, prison (in 1974 Paradjanov was sentenced for his dissident speeches. A wave of international protest led to his release in 1978), friends, Tiflis, Kiev and Erevan - seven stories by Paradjanov, who is surrounded by his friends - the ones who shared his long and difficult path...
