Based in the true saga of British TV journalist Michael Nicholson, story follows Michael Henderson and his news team to war-torn Sarajevo. It's 1992 and the city has just seen its worst fighting as Bosnian Serbs try to derail the country's new independence with artillery bombardment. While there, Henderson encounters Flynn, a US TV journalist more famous than the news he's covering, and Annie, a freelance writer covering her first war. Henderson and company eventually come across an orphanage near the front lines and are so compelled by the scene that they choose to make it front page news. Henderson's involvement is so deep that he makes plans to take one of the children, Emira, back to England, illegally, with the help of an American aid worker. However, he must eventually return to Sarajevo to face the consequences of his actions.
