This film is based on real events which took place in Nyange Secondary School on March 18th,1997.

It was made as a collaboration between Rwandan and visiting film-makers, and was filmed on location where the real events took place, with the support of the school and local community.

The Nyange school students were attacked by rebels in the aftermath of the 1994 genocide. Their refusal to betray each other cost some of them everything, but gave hope to a nation.
