Synopsis

Two childhood friends are reunited 12 years after being sent to separate foster parents. Together, Raphael and Michael survived a traumatic and tragic night in Rwanda, 1994. Focalised through these two bruised young adults, their lives and the lives of those around them are affected by the stirring of their deep hidden memories. Raphael, after years of denial, must open his heart to his girlfriend, Maria. Whereas Michael needs to exit a lifestyle of drinks, drugs and sex, he too has people who deeply care about him, if only he will let them understand.

Red Fruit, based on events, combines a story of character and relationships, with factual accounts of the Rwandan genocide. Archive footage adds, in parts, an almost documentary feel to this piece, which offers not only an understanding of human nature, but also a historical and cultural human tragedy.
