SYNOPSIS

Traversing time and continents the film examines the cycle of violence, and the world's response, from a variety of angles - historical, psychological, political, legal, and experiential. Inspired by Samantha Power's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, “A Problem From Hell," director Edet Belzberg brings viewers into traditionally inaccessible places and introduces memorable characters, weaving together four modern stories while uncovering the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin, the tenacious inventor of the word ‘genocide.' The film takes you on a journey from Nuremberg to Rwanda, from Bosnia to Darfur, and from apathy to action.
