Sense Of An Ending
by Ken Urban

‘The weight of what is to come is unbearable. It is crushing me.

Charles, a disgraced New York Times journalist, arrives in Rwanda for an exclusive interview with two Hutu nuns. Charged with war crimes during the 1994 genocide, the nuns must convince the world of their innocence or face a lifetime in prison. When an unknown survivor contradicts their story, Charles must choose which version of the truth to believe.

Ken Urban’s award-winning Sense of an Ending shines a light on journalistic truth and morality amid the atrocity of the Rwandan genocide. Directed by Jonathan O’Boyle, and marking the 21st anniversary of the genocide, this compelling political thriller asks if forgiveness is possible in a situation where truth is never simple.
