April in Rwanda: the month of mourning in the new Rwandan calendar. While the country is commemorating the 10th anniversary of the genocide, children play games. Filmmaker Sarah Vanagt spent the Easter holiday in a "children’s republic", governed by genocide orphans and refugee children growing up in the war-torn border zone between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Some of the scenes of this film are presented separately as individual video loops, such as History Lesson, Money Exchange & Border Game.
