In 2015, exactly 100 years after the Armenian Genocide, a theatre director (Simon) is staging a play at the Los Angeles Theatre to honor the victims of that tragedy—a horrifying crime forgotten and denied for an entire century.
But as protestors surround his theatre, and a series of mysterious accidents spread panic among his actors, we realize that Simon’s mission is more controversial than we think—and the ghosts of the past are everywhere.

The magic of the play won’t work unless the actors, especially Simon’s enigmatic wife Angela, face the truths that haunt their own lives
