1915: The blacksmith Nazaret Manoogian had lived a happy life with his wife and twin daughters in the city of Mardin before being arrested by the Turkish police – along with all other Christians of Armenian origin. Separated from his family, he is forced to toil in the desert as a forced labourer. He survives an execution squad and flees. Deserters help him on his journey; he encounters his dying sister-in-law in a refugee camp, finds shelter and work in Aleppo for a Syrian soap manufacturer, and there experiences the end of the First World War. Nazaret hears word that his daughters have survived the Armenian genocide at the hands of the Turks. The search for his daughters leads Nazaret to Lebanon, Cuba and the USA. In the end, one of them has survived. With THE CUT, Fatih Akin has succeeded in making an epic, yet controversial film.
