Synopsis: 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 protesters 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.

What, you guys don't do

vocal stretches?

Oh, I just did them earlier.

Hey, listen, Tony, I've got

a question for you.

Yeah, sure.

What's going on with Angela?

She was so warm and friendly

when we started.

You really don't know?

Get ready for rehearsal.

We're running out of time!

Running out of time.

Getting nervous?

You must be a little worried

about Angela.

What? Come on, don't look at me

like that. You know what I mean.

This role you've written

for her, I mean, it's so cruel.

It's horrifying.

Yeah, this is the kind

of decision people had to make.

Your grandmother,

she did the same thing.

You're alive because she

ran off with a Turk!

What are you talking about?

I get that.

But Angela, maybe she

deserves a happier ending.

There was no

happy ending in 1915.

Even our survival was tragic.

But our play can have

a happy ending.

I'm just saying that maybe if you would

consider just rehearsing it once...

You can't change history to make it

more comfortable for you. You can't.

Face the past, Tony.

Face the past.

Face the past.

Are you in there?

I was thinking, I know that Simon doesn't

want us to rehearse the ending...

but maybe you and I could

do a walk through of it.

I won't tell if you won't.

Angela, say something.

You know we're supposed

to run off together.

By the end of the summer...

there will be no Armenians

left on the face of the earth.

By the end of the summer...

there will be no Armenians left

on the face of the earth.

You are all being marched

to your deaths.

I want you to leave with me.

I want to escape together.

I want to escape to...

together... together.

I want to make you an offer

you can't refuse.

I want you to escape with me.

I want... I want...

Hey, Tony.



Are those my lines?
