The film does an excellent job at portraying the events that led to the Asia Minor Catastrophe through the eyes of an prominent Smyrna family with Greek roots in a balanced fashion. It highlights the fact that the Asia Minor Diaspora held different view as to the stance to be taken in the war, or how the Turks that were living in peace with the other nationalities were pressured to either side with the nationalists or to be treated as traitors themselves. The film respects historical accuracy and offers an unbiased view, providing equal screen time to all sides that played part in this story. The captivating storytelling allows for the impact and emotional toll of the events speak for themselves. The production, attention to detail, and research that must have gone into the creation of the film are also of the highest standard. A highly recommended offering for everyone with important lessons for followers of current events.
