In more than 20 years, the Congo War has claimed six million lives. The population suffers from impunity, the war-crimes have never been legally prosecuted. Due to the high occurence of "high-tech raw materials", many consider the conflict as one of the most decisive economic battles for the share in the era of globalization. For this documentary, Milo Rau gathered victims, perpetrators, witnesses and analysts of the Congo War for a unique civil tribunal in Eastern Congo.
