Beatrice And Purudenci were childhood sweethearts. The only problem was it was 1994 and Beatrice was being hunted. To make matters worse Purudenci’s family were the hunters. This film documents the stories of three couples who intermarried after the genocide in Rwanda. The trauma they faced is exceptional and so is the power and resilience of their love.
