Synopsis

Stéphanie and Ncuti, two Rwandan actors, and Simon, a Belgian technician, meet at the former headquarters of RTLM, the propaganda radio station during the Rwandan genocide of 1994, to prepare a program that conveys to its listeners ideas of forgiveness, pacification and hope. As the rehearsal progresses, they will discover that they have a common past and they will see that reconciliation is not as easy as they tried to believe.
