Deborah Scranton's film looks at the 1994 genocide in Rwanda from both political and personal perspectives. In 2008, Rwandan President Paul Kagame released a report detailing France's hidden role in the genocide. Three months later, his closest aide, Rose Kabuye, was arrested in France on charges of terrorism.
Jean Pierre Sagahutu is a genocide survivor haunted by his father's unsolved murder. Scouring the Rwandan countryside on a fifteen-year search for clues, he ultimately finds himself face-to-face with his father's killer.
As Kagame fights to free Rose and expose the truth of what really happened and Sagahutu faces his father's killer, each finds himself faced with a choice: to enact vengeance or to turn the other cheek.
