Could you forgive a person who murdered your family? This the question faced by two Rwandan women coming face-to-face with the men who slaughtered their families during the 1994 genocide. Overwhelmed by an enormous backlog of court cases and overcrowded prisons, in 2003 40,000 convicted genocide perpetrators were released back into society. Life goes on after the genocide, but now former murderers must coexist with victims. The film tells first-hand stories of those most directly affected by genocide's ruthless blade: the orphans, widows, and killers. The film highlights the escape stories of two women, and the men who slaughtered their families. The men seek forgiveness, and the women come face-to-face with doubt, fear, and the nature of forgiveness. The shattered lives of these victims are being restored through forgiveness and reconciliation, as victims and offenders find peace.
