AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sydney, 1980: The Turkish consul-general is assassinated by two gunmen, and an international terrorist group claim responsibility. Vrezh, an Armenian-Australian, longs to be involved, believing the attacks are justice for the Armenian genocide.

'Through his brother, Vrezh meets Softie, a shadowy Armenian. Softie forces him to build a bomb by threatening to turn his brother in to the police for the assassination.

'Desperate to save his brother, Vrezh uses the bomb to murder Softie, risking his own life. His brother arrives in time to save him, but Vrezh’s injuries and the resulting rift with his family leave him disillusioned.'
