Synopsis

What does a couple of Polish directors know about the massacre in Rwanda? Why do they care? Somehow the genocide from 1994 has an important outcome now. The film follows the story of a Polish ornithologist in Rwanda. The brutal events left marks in Anna’s heart and soul but also are personified in Claudine, the young Toutsi woman, she decided to bring to Poland.
