On April 6, 1994, the plane carrying Rwandan President Juvenal Habyrimana was shot down over Kigali. The attack immediately triggered one of the worst genocides in history. In just 100 days, more than 800,000 Tutsis were massacred.

Alain Stanké met with survivors of the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda 25 years later. How does an entire country recover from such a tragedy? How do people who have experienced such horror bounce back?

Through the accounts of survivors, experts, and Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire, the documentary looks back at the tragic events that forever changed the lives of those who experienced them. How do they survive despite post-traumatic injuries? How can they forgive those who decimated their families? How do they manage to pass on this horrific story to future generations so that such unspeakable acts never happen again?

A quarter of a century later, Alain Stanké went to meet these extraordinarily resilient people in a country that is doing all it can to rebuild itself.
