Directed by Robert Favreau, it relates the story of Bernard Valcourt, a documentary film maker and journalist who falls in love with a young Rwandan woman, Gentille, who works at the Hôtel Des Mille Collines. The brutal violence of the Rwandan genocide separates them; a few months later, Bernard returns to Rwanda seeking Gentille. Most of the narrative unfolds in retrospect.
