Based on true stories, the film invites audiences to enter the world of the international press corps — a group of war correspondents, some jaded, some still innocent, covering the news in one of the most dangerous places on earth. The year is 1992, the beginning of the siege of Sarajevo. News correspondent Michael Henderson develops a competitive friendship with Flynn, an arrogant TV reporter, as they cover the chaos and suffering occurring around them. During their reports, they find an orphanage run by the devoted Mrs. Savic near the frontline. Henderson decides to smuggle an orphan girl, Emira, out of Sarajevo by quasi-legal means so that he and his wife can adopt her. Shot just a few months after the war on locations in Sarajevo and Croatia, the film uses real ruins and war debris to give the film a feeling of authenticity.
