This film traces the journey of Stephanie Nyombayire, a young Rwandan anti-genocide activist and Sir Martin Gilbert, the renowned Holocaust historian, as they travel across 15 countries and three continents interviewing survivors and descendants of the diplomats who rescued thousands of Jews from the unspeakable horrors of the Nazi death camps. While Nyombayire embarks upon this quest in an effort to uncover potential solutions for the ongoing genocide in Darfur and elsewhere, what emerges from their journey is more a testament to the ways in which the inherent good in the human spirit can trump institutional evil no matter what the circumstance.
