On April 6, 1994, a plane carrying Rwanda President Juvenal Habyrimana was shot down over Kigali. The attack immediately triggered one of the worst genocides in history. Over the next 100 days, some 800,000 people were massacred.
25 years on, Alain Stanké goes to meet the survivors of the genocide committed against Rwanda’s Tutsis. How does an entire country recover from such dramatic events? How do people who have experienced such horror cope?
Through eyewitness accounts of survivors, specialists, and Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire, the documentary revisits the tragic events that changed forever the lives of those who experienced it. How do you manage to survive with post-traumatic syndrome? How can you forgive the people who slaughtered your families? How do you tell future generations about this terrible history so it never happens again?
A quarter of a century later, Alain Stanké goes to meet extremely resilient human beings, in a country trying, with greater or lesser success, to rebuild itself.
