Alphonsine claims to have seen visions of the Virgin Mary and is ostracized in the all-girls’ Catholic school she attends…until others confirm seeing the same visions that foretell the genocide in Rwanda. Based on true and tragic events, Our Lady of Kibeho is a story of faith and everyday miracles that explores the questions of religion and belief.
What role does culture play in religion?
