EN - Twenty-five years ago in the seemingly tropical paradise of Rwanda, roughly 800,000 Tutsi and moderate Hutu were brutally killed over 100 days. Each of the episodes tells the story of people sharing the same past, but having experienced it from different point of views. We work towards a meeting or confrontation between those key witnesses. They have influenced each other’s lives - and possibly made a difference between life and death - which meant we couldn’t predict how these meetings would evolve.
