Synopsis

In just 100 days, nearly a million people were killed by neighbors who somehow became strangers--otherwise decent people who, even now, well over a decade later, still can't believe they could be part of such a thing. The genocide that took place in Rwanda in 1994 defies imagination, but "how and why" are questions without answers, questions of the past. A far greater mystery is unfolding in the here and now. Somehow, the people of Rwanda have learned to forgive the unforgivable. By all appearances, they not only are coexisting, but actually living and working together to rebuild their country as a model of economic prosperity for the rest of Africa.
