Amidst growing Hutu-Tutsi tension in Rwanda, a couple meet and fall in love.
When genocide explodes in 1994, Nicholas, a Hutu, must discover how to protect his wife Elsie — a Tutsi — from the murderous Hutu militias. Elsie assumes a false identity, and the two begin a dangerous journey to flee the country. When they finally cross into neighbouring Congo, Nicholas and Elsie discover their journey has only just begun.
After such evil, how can Hutu and Tutsi forgive one another? How can a nation heal? How can husband and wife face their past, forgive, and rebuild their family?
