It was a genocide that no one stopped until it was too late. A damning report has been published on the failure of the United Nations to prevent the genocide in Rwanda in 1994. An independent inquiry team – headed by former Swedish Prime Minister Ingvar Carlsson – said the UN had ignored evidence that a genocide was planned and had refused to act once it had started. This documentary examines details about a rescue plan that might have saved half a million lives and about a General who disobeyed UN orders to pull all his troops out of Rwanda just before the massacres began. As we hear in this film, the plan provides damning evidence of the bureaucracy of the UN.
