When German Military journalist Robert Sternvall returns to Nagorno-Karabagh (Artsakh) in the Caucus region to cover the armed conflict, he is faced with his past. Tortured by pangs of conscience, he makes a step towards repentance and goes on the path to the ‘Gate to Heaven’. Filmmaker Jivan Avetisyan is passionate about sharing the Artsakh story with the world.
