It is 1914. As World War I looms, the vast Ottoman Empire is crumbling. Constantinople (today’s Istanbul)—its once vibrant, multicultural capital—is about to be consumed by chaos. Michael Boghosian (Oscar Isaac) arrives in the cosmopolitan hub as a medical student. He is determined to bring modern medicine back to his ancestral village in southern Turkey, where the Muslim Turks and the Christian Armenians have lived side by side for centuries.
