Playwright Pierre Zakar (Richard Berry) has become the toast of the Paris theater scene. But when his parents, Hagop (Omar Sharif) and Araxi (Claudia Cardinale), come to visit their son, it throws his personal life into turmoil. Through selective editing and embellishment, Zakar has created a false past for himself that hides his upbringing in rural Armenia. The disconnect between his glamorous urban life and his impoverished but loving childhood in the country threatens to overwhelm him.
Director: Henri Verneuil
