Paris, April 1994. Antoine Rives, a freelance journalist, is doing a report on displaced Rwandans. He meets Clément, a Rwandan student of hutu origin whose tutsi fiancée, Alice, has disappeared. Rives convinces Clément to return with him to Rwanda to search for Alice and to allow him to film his journey. Finding himself surrounded by chaos, Antoine begins to wonder just how far he can go to film and expose human tragedy to the rest of the world.
