'We are Rwandans,' the soccer players Migi, Hubert and Ndoli claim, 'not Hutu or Tutsi'. Twenty years after the genocide in Rwanda, ethnicity officially does not play a role anymore, but reality is obstinate, as demonstrated by the stories of the players and journalist Daniel Sabiiti. How real is the reconciliation? Army team APR FC is preparing for the match of the year. The crowd is seething when APR take on arch enemy and people’s club Rayon Sports. There is clearly more at stake. How strong is the regime? Is there hope of more freedom?
