Ending his career as a reckless daredevil, war cameraman Marc Hoogsteyns looks back at his own past and the way he behaved towards the people he met in front of his camera.
After a careless life of adventure and boundless freedom, mixing with warlords and war criminals, his views change when he films the genocide victims in Rwanda and soon after marries a female soldier of the Rwandese Liberation Army. Suddenly the hatred and misery that befell others became part of his life. In search of reconciliation with himself he decided to follow his wife’s uncle - a Congolese refugee in Rwanda - when he decides to return home and reclaim the land that was stolen from him.
