Bloodless - The path to democracy

In the course of history, only a few revolutions have been successful, let alone those without Bloodshed.  Nikol Pashinyan, a charismatic former journalist and political prisoner, galvanized support among the youth and women, by using non-violent civil disobedience protests and social media.  In a short period of 6 weeks, a corrupt oligarchy was toppled, and democracy restored. Deemed short of a miracle, BLOODLESS is a riveting political thriller, capturing the story as events unfold in the spring of 2018 in Armenia.
