Ruanda, 1994. The Polish ornithologist Anna is on a field trip when the genocide of the Tutsis at the hands of the Hutus breaks out. Anna manages to save Claudine, the daughter of a colleague murdered with the rest of his family, and get her to Poland. But the pair find no peace: the trauma is too deep, their relationship too tense. When the situation returns to normal, Claudine returns home. Anna accompanies her in the search for her former life and the graves of her relatives. Jowita Budnik and Eliane Umuhire won the awards for Best Actress in this impressive drama at the Karlovy Vary festival.
