The history of genocide and one man's struggle to define it

Raphael Lemkin fought his whole adult life to ratify a law specifically dealing with genocide. WATCHERS OF THE SKY tells the story of Lemkin as well as four other brave humanitarians. We meet former war correspondent Samantha Power, former prosecutor at the International Criminal Court in Hague Luis Moreno Ocampo, Nuremberg prosecutor Benjamin Ferencz and refugee camp manager Emmanuel Uwurukundo. The resulting film is a journey into the darkest and most shameful corners of human history, but also an attempt to map the road back.
