About teh Film

A president and a citizen—bound together by a profound love of country and an unquenchable desire to see the truth revealed—fight to uncover the mystery behind a murder and France’s hidden role in the horrific 1994 Rwandan genocide. This powerful investigative documentary from the director of The War Tapes (best doc, TFF ‘06) is driven by the inspiring and uplifting stories of Rwandan president Paul Kagame and genocide survivor Jean Pierre Sagahutu. The film hopes to serve as a blueprint for areas of the world trapped in cycles of violence and retribution like Gaza, Iraq, etc. This is a story about the path to peace through the pursuit and discovery of the truth about the past and is a stirring wake-up call to all corners of the Earth stricken by violence.
