Synopsis

A Hundred Days is a story of love in times of war and the devastation caused by hate. Rwanda, April 1994; in Kigali the mob runs riot. David, who works for the Swiss foreign aid, has let the last plane sent to evacuate foreigners leave without him. For a hundred days he hides in his house. His gardener provides him with food and with information about Agathe, the daughter of a ministry official who is his reason for staying here. He thinks about the past four years, years spent loving Agathe and working as a VSO worker in Kigali. Millions have been invested in a totalitarian regime that organised genocide when a rebel army threatened to seize power. Even David became an accomplice to the slaughterers, and when the rebels take over Kigali he flees over the border with the mass murderers. There he finds Agathe again in a refugee camp, but she is no longer the woman he once loved.
