"Armenians call Istanbul Bolis," Armenak says in the film. His feelings toward the city, which his Armenian grandfather fled at the tip of the sword in 1915, are very complex. Armenak arrives full of prejudice, expecting to hate the place, but instead finds it very familiar. The decision comes naturally to him to search for his grandfather's old musical instrument shop with only an old photo and a street name. He finds his grandfather's oud shop and a family musical heirloom that disappeared during the Armenian Genocide. "Bolis" was one of the seven films (six shorts+an epilogue) of the omnibus project, Do Not Forget Me Istanbul made in 2010 as part of the European Capital of Culture Istanbul 2010 program.
