For over 5,000 years, the beliefs and cultural traditions of the Syriacs have continued to live on in their Holy Land, located in the Southeastern Anatolian region of Turkey. As one of the first peoples to accept Christianity, they played a prominent role in the promulgation of this world religion. The Syriac culture should be revered as a universal heritage that has enabled the language of Jesus Christ to survive to this day. Unfortunately, this culture has been overlooked, and the circumstances which have forced their migration from their homeland in Mesopotamia are growing increasingly severe, causing a rapid diminishment of their presence in the region.

The Suryoyo Documentary tells the story of the Syriacs by showing the Saint Michael's Day celebrations of the remaining small Syriac community in Mardin.This story covers one day and includes the beliefs, culture and history of the Syriacs, pluse their artisanry in the areas of stone carving, silver working and cloth printing. The story of one day in the lives of these last few remaining artisans is described in segments from the lives and works of the 92-year-old former weaver Ms. Merin, the 85-year-old cloth printer Nasra Simeshindi, one of the last generation silver workers master craftsman Gevriye, and the last master stone carver Gebro Cevik. These artists seem to drift to us through the millenia.
