Synopsis:

Can words kill? Can a radio broadcast fuel massacres? How susceptible are we to media manipulation? 
 
Rwanda, 1994. A radio broadcast sparks the most brutal genocide since the end of the Cold War. Rwandan society is swept away by the idea of eradicating a minority in the name of peace and freedom.  
 
Twenty years on, an award-winning dramatist reconstructs a radio broadcast from RTLM using eyewitness accounts, studies, and reports of real-life events during the genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda.
