Director Paul Cowen traces the The United Nations Department of Peacekeeping's efforts in preventing a Rwandan-style disaster in the Democratic Republic of Congo by shifting between the events unfolding at the United Nations headquarters in New York and the rising tensions in the DRC. Watch as the peacekeepers in the "Crisis Room" attempt to balance the risk of loss of life against the large amounts of financing required from skittish donor countries, and see the chaos that unfolds when northeast Congo erupts, threatening the future of the DNC, and the stability of central Africa. With memories of Rwanda hanging heavy in his head and the entire world spiraling into chaos, Secretary General Kofi Annan implores the General Assembly to act quickly, lest history condemn them for their inaction.
