At least 25 thousand people lost their lives in 1988, when a massive earthquake hit Gyumri, a city in Armenia. one third of the victims were children. In her film Jana Sevcíková attempts to show how this traumatic event is remembered. This film in not only an attempt to reconstruct the flow of the events - it chronicles the sequence of events using film and photography, it also shows how the events are remembered and how this memory is a part of contemporary consciousness of people who survived, and people who were affected indirectly by what happened, for example the children born after the tragedy, and after their siblings' death. This is how Sevcíková also deals with post traumatic memories.
