    April 1994, Rwanda. During the first days of the genocide, Westerners flee the country. Before being evacuated, a Belgian family hides their childrens' young nanny Jacqueline in the false roof of their house. Despite the terror, Jacqueline exits from her hiding place to join her children, who have been left on their own. The young mother finds their lifeless bodies among many other corpses. Chased from her village, hunted like a wild animal, she takes refuge in a forest.
