Based in part on his Governor General's Award winning book of the same title, "Shake Hands with the Devil" is the searing, emotional journey of Canadian Lt-General Romeo Dallaire, who commanded the UN peacekeeping mission to Rwanda in 1994. Over 100 days, 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were slaughtered during the Rwanda genocide as the international community turned its back and ignored Dallaire's cries for assistance. This experience led to Dallaire's own life tragedies as he dealt wth the psychological fallout of witnessing a genocide he was powerless to stop. Filmed during General Dallaire's first return to Rwanda in April, 2004.

A provocative and heart breaking documentary that raises unsettling relationship between peacemaking and the role of the military.
