Bloodstained machetes are laid to rest. Their masters flee while their victims are buried. July 1994. As the dust slowly settles, the full scale of what happened in the past hundred days gradually comes to light. The contours of a wholesale genocide transpire; Tutsi massacred for being Tutsi, together with Hutu for resisting this premeditated extermination. As the survivors count the uncountable dead, the atrocity lingers on. It is carved in the minds of its witnesses and remains like a phantom pain to their ancestors.
