I Married My Family's Killer

Beatrice and Purudenci were childhood sweethearts. They planned to be wed. the only problem was, it was 1994 in Rwanda and Beatrice was being hunted. To make matters worse, Purudenci's family were the hunters. This film documents the lives of three couples that married from killer and victim families in Rwanda. In two of the three cases in this film, the victims married into the families that killed their own. The trauma and pain these couples experience is exceptional, and so is the power and resilience of their love for one another.
