A fascinating documentary about how Egypt has been a special homeland for Armenians. The film looks at the stories that were transmitted from generation to generation and how the community preserved their language, culture and heritage by building their own schools, sporting clubs and churches.

Furthermore, it reveals how the Armenians contributed to the Egyptian social and economic life and enriched their new homeland.
