To commemorate the Rwandan Genocide...

Rwanda, 20 years after. We are in a detention center for women. In 1994, they all killed someone, neighbors or perfect strangers. For the first time in Rwanda, women took part to the slaughters.

Followed by the cameras for three years, eight women persecutors start to remember and confess.

How could those ordinary women get involved in one of the most dreadful genocide of the 20th century? The son of one of those women and a murdered Tutsi, Jérôme, is looking for answers in order to heal and appease History.
