In 1989, in a small village in Mukura in Eastern Uganda, government soldiers accused the residents of being rebels, making only an exception when they could prove otherwise by means of an identification card. Sixty-nine of the residents failed to identify themselves and were hence locked in train wagons and set on fire. All but one died. Stunningly told through puppets, this film unravels a story the government would rather deny.
