A documentary recounting the journey of a group of Roman students (accompanied by the city's mayor, Walter Veltroni) who, having collected funds to build a school and an aqueduct in Gatare, leave for Rwanda to assist the start of building work. What the kids discovered about the country's history and culture, shown in a wider context of international relations, opened their eyes to the real reasons behind an ethnic war with such terrible consequences. The delegation also had the chance to see the country's beauty and the dignified vitality of its people. Enriched by a fresh understanding and by new strong links, the students left, sure in the knowledge they would soon return.
