This movie is very much an "on the ground" account of the process of forgiveness and reconcilliation that is happening in some areas in Rwanda. It is both moving and thought provoking. I would recommend it for anyone who is struggling with the call to forgive, especially churches that are fighting over styles of worship and other church culture wars. It puts it all into a much better perspective, and really high lights the inevitable evils of tribalism, or the "us verses them" mentality that we are all prone to.
