Ten years ago, as the country of Rwanda descended into madness, one man made a promise to protect the family he loved -- and ended up finding the courage to save over 1200 people. Real-life hero Paul Rusesabagina (Don Cheadle), a hotel manager in Rwanda, used his courage and cunning to shelter over a thousand refugees from certain death.

While the rest of the world closed its eyes, Paul opened his heart and proved that one good man can make a difference.
