'A Place for Everyone' explores the human geography of a Rwandan village two decades after the genocide. Survivors and killers still live next to each other and a new generation of young Rwandans has grown up in a society that under goes a fragile reconciliation process. Filmed over the course of more than four years, "A Place for Everyone" portrays a generation of young Rwandans in their quest for love and hate, revenge and forgiveness.
