Det varer ikke længe, før de to arvinger, drevet af magtbegær og grådighed, erklærer krig mod hinanden, og mens det mægtige rige trues af død og ødelæggelse, taber Hidetora efterhånden sin forstand.

  • Hotel Rwanda

    March 4, 2004

    I 1994 eksploderer borgerkrigen i Rwanda. Hutu-militserne dræber næsten en million tutsier, mens FN styrkerne må se magtesløse til, for ordren fra hovedkvarteret i New York lyder ubøjeligt på at bevare freden, ikke at skabe den! Men ikke kun FN svigter. Hele den magtfulde vestlige verden vender ryggen til folkemordet. Én mand har modet til at reagere. Som bestyrer af et luksushotel åbner hutuen Paul dørene for alle desperate, mens ondskaben går amok lige udenfor. Som en afrikansk Schindler, alene mod overmagten og med livet som indsats, trygler, bestikker og truer han i alle lejre for at redde sin familie og de alt for mange flygtninge fra døden. Paul vælger ikke side mellem hutuer og tutsier. Han er ikke nogen helt – han er et menneske.
