    • Synopsis
    • Starring John Hurt and Hugh Dancy, this deeply moving and critically acclaimed drama from director Michael Caton-Jones is an emotional retelling of the tragic events that took place at l'Ecole Technique Officielle during the Rwandan genocide of 1994.
      Joe Connor has come to teach in Rwanda because he believes he can make a difference. When the school becomes a haven for thousands of Rwandans fleeing the escalating violence, Joe promises his brightest pupil, Marie, that the UN soldiers will protect her from the hordes of extremist militia baying for blood outside the school. But when the UNH abandons the refugees, Joe and the school's headmaster, Father Christopher, face an agonising dilemma: should they leave or should they stand firm with the Rwandans?
