Film synopsis
Rwanda, 1973. In the prestigious Catholic institute "Notre-Dame du Nil", perched on a hill, young Rwandan girls study to become the elite of the country. In the process of graduating, they share the same dormitory, the same dreams, the same teenage problems. But, all over the country and even inside the school, deep antagonisms are rumbling. That will forever change the fate of these young girls and the whole country.
