Storyline

Amid the horrific ethnic violence of the Rwandan genocide, many Hutus risked their lives to save Tutsi neighbors. In a matter of months in early 1994, Hutus slaughtered at least 800,000 of the Tutsi population, despite the fact that the two groups had long lived side by side. However, amid these terrible acts of violence, incredible stories of humanity also emerged. Many Hutus, defying ethnic divisions, risked their lives by hiding Tutsi neighbors in their homes. In 2008, Tutsis who were saved reunited with those neighbors who put their lives on the line and rejected violence. This short film interviews both Hutus and Tutsis as they recall incredible acts of humanity that took place even during the darkest days of the genocide. Written by Anonymous
