Ararat depicts the Armenian genocide, from the fictionalised point of view of a genuine historical figure, Arshile Gorky. As the filming progresses, various characters involved with it encounter the ethical problems that arise when adaptating contentious subjects into movies; for example, Elias Koteas plays Ali, a Turkish-Canadian actor who becomes uncomfortable with playing the role of an evil Turkish military officer. There are also a number of secondary plots that relate to the genocide. One involves the relationship between Ani (played by Arsinee Khanjian), an art historian who is an expert on Gorky and an adviser on Saroyan's film, and her son Raffi (David Alpay). Another features Raffi and a Canadian customs official, David (Christopher Plummer), whose son is having a homosexual relationship with Ali, the actor in Saroyan's film. David stops Raffi at the airport, suspecting him of carrying drugs into Canada, disguised as film canisters.
