The Rope -- Based on an actual story, 'The Rope' is a loving nod to peasant life and the outlandish idiosyncrasies that make bona fide characters out of many a villager. During the snow-laden winters of the Armenian highlands, villagers are mostly confined to their homes. As indoor activities are limited, the men often take to drinking by way of hushing boredom.
When Setrak (Michael Poghosian in fiendish form) is denied wine by his wife, he goes berserk and storms out of the house, intent on hanging himself in the barn. As he rushes to his end, he also can't help wondering what the missus would do when she sees him dangling lifelessly from the ceiling.
Some time later, when his wife has a change of heart and walks into the barn with a jug of wine in hand, she is confronted by the awful truth. Setrak is dead. Or is he?
What follows is a comedy of errors involving a theft by an old woman, an actual death, the police, time in jail, and a time for self-reckoning, all performed with deadpan humor for a fun-seeking camera.
