Synopsis

Veneranda, 45, a survivor of the genocide, dedicates her life to helping women from both ethnic backgrounds to get on a healing path to closure.
When she learns that her 18 years old daughter, born from the rape she had to suffer during the genocide, is expecting a baby, she assumes her boyfriend is a Hutu, the ethnic group responsible for the genocide.
Convinced that her daughter was raped too and fearing that her history will repeat itself, Veneranda takes it upon herself to stop both her daughter’s pregnancy and relationship.
She organizes Tina’s abortion, leading to a beneficial confrontation between mother and daughter : Veneranda has to chose between letting her past fears guide her, or letting go to free herself.
