In the first dramatic feature film conceived and produced by Rwandans, this is the story of lives swept up by the chaos of the world around them. During the 1994 Rwandan genocide the Mufti of Rwanda, the most respected Muslim leader in the country, issued a fatwa forbidding Muslims from participating in the killing of the Tutsi. As the country became a slaughterhouse, mosques became places where Muslims and Christians, Hutus and Tutsis came together to protect each other. The story is based on true accounts from survivors who took refuge at the Grand Mosque of Kigali and the Imams who opened their doors to the Tutsi, and to those Hutu who refused to participate in the killing. Six interwoven tales, of young lovers, a soldier, a child, a Tutsi/Hutu couple, an Imam, and a priest, provide a complex and moving depiction of survival, and the resilience of the human spirit.
