Hotel Rwanda

Paul Rusesabagina (Don Cheadle) is the black assistant manager in a Belgian-owned luxury hotel in Kigali, Rwanda, Africa. It is 1994 and civil was broken out outside the walls of the four-star lodging and the now-in-power Hutu tribe is bent on getting revenge on the previously powerful Tutsis. Paul, a Hutu but non-political, only wants to save his family from the coming slaughter, but soon realizes there is more at stake – the lives of over one thousand people, Tutsi and Hutu alike, who come to find sanctuary at “Hotel Rwanda.”
