Refugees from Rwanda have been waiting for a change in their country since the Genocide of 1994.
Many more have arrived over the intervening years fleeing persecution and a progressively falling standard of living in the countryside.
The Rwandan government and the UNHCR have been pressuring governments in 12 countries to push the refugees back home.
In many instances, the Rwandan government uses spies and bribes are paid to disrupt and confuse the refugees, making it hard for them to organize.

Stateless gives the overview of the failure of the UNHCR and Rwanda to give a lasting and safe home for the refugees. It also points out failures of the UNHCR in the institution of it's own mandates regarding article 51 on refugees and the "Cessation Clause".
Because of a small group of refugees and dedicated Human Rights defenders, Rwanda and the UNHCR were thwarted in instituting the forced return of refugees in all but 3 of the 12 countries that have been pressured to accept the terms of the UN clause on refugees.
Featuring Paul Rusesabagina (of Hotel Rwanda fame) and Theogene Rudesingwa, former Rwandan Ambassador to the United States (now in exile).
Much of the film was shot by the refugees themselves.
