Michael resides in a small Village in historic Armenia, on the eastern part of the Ottoman Turkish Empire. He promises himself to a rich woman of the village to gain 400 gold coins as dowry. That gives him the allowance to travel to Istanbul – the city known then and now to Armenians by it’s historical name Konstantinopoli. He then befriends the son of a powerful general.
