Returning to his village, he finds that the townspeople of Turkish background have violently turned on their fellow townspeople of Armenian background.
His parents, and particularly his mother, persuade him to marry Maral and seek refuge in a remote mountain cabin, where she soon becomes pregnant. A difficult pregnancy leads Mikael to bring his wife back to the care of his mother in the village.
There he learns that Ana and Christopher are at a nearby Red Cross facility and he goes to seek their help for his family to escape the imminent Turkish threat.
Departing the mission with a group of orphans, they head back to Siroun to retrieve Mikael's family. Along the way, however, they encounter a site of a massacre, as it becomes clear all of Siroun's inhabitants, including Mikael's family, save his mother, have been killed by Ottoman troops.
Mikael's wife is found with their unborn child cut out from her body. Chris is captured by Ottoman soldiers and sent back to Constantinople, charged with being a spy for the Allied Powers and, while held at Selimiye Barracks , slated for execution by the authorities; with the help of Emre, and through the intercession of American Ambassador Henry Morgenthau , Chris is released and deported to Malta.
Once there, he boards the French cruiser Guichen , as it prepares to set sail along the Ottoman coast. Emre's role in helping to save Chris is discovered and he is executed by firing squad.
Escaping pursuit, Mikael, Ana, and the orphans join a large group of refugees determined to fight off the Ottoman Army on Mount Musa Dagh.
As they fend off repeated assaults, Mikael's mother succumbs to her wounds and is buried on the mountain. The refugees hold on long enough to escape on the back side to the coast as the Guichen comes to evacuate them.
But as the life boats return to the ship, a Turkish artillery barrage throws Ana and Yeva, the young daughter of Mikael's uncle, overboard.
Mikael jumps in after them and is able to rescue Yeva, but Ana drowns. In a voice over, Mikael recounts that he adopted Yeva and together they settled in Watertown, Massachusetts while Chris was killed reporting the Spanish Civil War in During Yeva's wedding reception in , with the now grown Armenian orphans in attendance, Mikael presides over a toast, wishing good fortune to their families and future generations to come.
The story of The Promise was based on an unproduced screenplay titled Anatolia by Robin Swicord , though Terry George completely rewrote the screenplay.
George, who directed human rights-related films,  became interested in the Armenian genocide as a filming topic after reading chapters about it in A Problem from Hell while doing research for Hotel Rwanda.
George traveled to Armenia and Turkey to do further research on the topic. He became involved with this project after reading Swicord's script, which his agent had sent to him.
The donation of the budget meant that the Turkish government would have been unable to pressure the studio into canceling the film, as it had done in the past with other productions.
Esrailian became interested in studying the Armenian genocide while a university undergraduate, and received a master's degree in public health, a degree which he said enhanced his understanding of demography.
Esrailian said that he used a romance plot in order to "use old fashioned storytelling" to immerse an unfamiliar audience into the plot,  hoping to avoid making the film only "a history lesson" and making a "throwback to cinema" like Doctor Zhivago or Lawrence of Arabia ;  in another interview he also cited Casablanca.
Esrailian stated that he would have encountered less difficulty producing "a straightforward genocide story" but chose to use the romance angle anyway.
George prepared for the film by reading Armenian Golgotha , which discusses the extent of and survival of the genocide; and The Burning Tigris , which discusses journalists documenting the genocide.
George said that he deliberately used a s production style and that he intended to reach the average common movie-goer, using the analogy of "is 'Hotel Rwanda' going to play in Peoria?
Will it be understood? Is it main stream [ sic ] enough? George chose to make the film with English as its single medium as he felt it would be too confusing for a moviegoer to manage hearing multiple languages spoken throughout the film.
The final scene of a toast is given in Armenian. Filming began in Autumn in Portugal , Malta, and Spain,  with the shooting scheduled to last until December.
Filming sites in Portugal included the National Museum of Natural History and Science, Lisbon , and the Lisbon School for Hospitality and Tourism held a casting call for film extras.
Filming sites in Spain included the Canary Islands. There were seventy days of production. Security details were arranged during filming due to political sensitivities around the Armenian genocide.
For the same reason, the producers did not issue publicity for the film during the filming process. But we all had this nebulous fear.
The film producers deliberately made a final film cut that would be, according to the Motion Picture Association of America MPAA rating system , PG,  so the audience could include teenagers and children;  the producers did this by removing scenes that would otherwise give it an "R" rating.
