Nearly 30 years ago, Spitak was devastated by a terrible earthquake, and tens of thousands of people died. The survivors seem frozen in this period forever, and today Spitak is a city of the dead. Pargev Manukyan's family lives opposite the huge Spitak cemetery – and it seems as if some unknown force does not allow them to escape the despair and poverty.
