On Nov. 11, 2008, Rwandan President Paul Kagame's closest aide, Rose Kabuye, was arrested by France on charges of terrorism three months after a report detailing the French government's hidden role in planning the 1994 Rwandan genocide was released. Meanwhile, Jean Pierre Sagahutu, a Rwandan genocide survivor, scours the countryside in search of clues to his father's murder fifteen years ago—ultimately finding himself confronted with his darkest desire: being face to face with his father's killer.
With the fate of both a country and a family hanging in the balance, the President and Jean Pierre fight to uncover and expose the truth, each ultimately coming face-to-face with the same choice: to take revenge or turn the other cheek.
