Loved the movie, just wished it was longer.
2 April 2014 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This is a great story, and a great find. I just wish the film followed what happened to the principle characters after the film (which is probably impossible unless you have a time machine) but perhaps that will be a DVD extra...

These people went through so much in Rwanda, and saw/did unspeakable things. It's so sad and heart breaking, though amazing that there is so much forgiveness in the people of Rwanda. Also that you don't need a lot in life to be happy and that we are truly lucky (or spoiled) here in the United States.

Hat off to Chris, Leah, and Todd for keeping with it. I know going back and forth to Rwanda couldn't have been easy (or fun) in any way. All three of you put your heart and soul into this film and it shows.
