1994 is a story of courage, hope, and perseverance in the face of genocide. It is the story of Straton Mulinga, a subsistence farmer of Butare Prefecture in southern Rwanda, who, when caught up in the insanity of the genocide, is separated from his family and forced to fl ee Rwanda and search for them in the squalor of the refugee camps in Tanzania. His young wife, Chantal, lives with the slender hope that Straton will somehow fi nd her and their three children. From the people they meet along the way they learn details of the horrors of the genocide. It is also the story of some evil men: Innocent Bagosora, Fabien Mukama, Evariste Gatera. And of Prosper Bugande, a Hutu, member of the Rwandan Military who leads a group of rebels in the abduction of a medical team from Mwisa refugee camp. A French doctor, Arianne DuBois, is one of the doctors abducted and taken to a remote place in Rwanda. In the ordeal she lives through she is subjected to both the good and evil of the men holding her captive. Sean MacGregor, an American university professor, in East Africa studying elephant communications and intelligence, on learning of the plight of the hostages, mounts a rescue mission, only to become a hostage himself. The desperate stories of Straton, Prosper, Innocent, Ari and Sean converge in events that explore the limits of human endurance and the will to survive.
