In April 2018, Nikol Pashinyan, set out alone to cross Armenia with his backpack. His mission: to denounce and overthrow the corrupt regime. Little by little, he is joined by huge crowds. There after follows 40 days of the Velvet Revolution that would change Armenia forever. Challenging the description of the Armenian people "who had forgotten how to dream", this powerful, fast-paced documentary tells the story of a revolution by combining front-line footage with fascinating interviews of all the protagonists, including the overthrown president. An event-film that tells the story of our time.
