Synopsis

In 2012 two war correspondents for The Sunday Times – celebrated American journalist Marie Colvin and British photographer Paul Conroy – illegally entered Syria to report on the Siege of Homs, a military confrontation between the Syrian army and Syrian opposition. This documentary adaptation of Conroy’s book features his testimony and extensive footage of the unfolding events, from crossing the Syrian border to meeting innocent civilians under state attack, to the fatal deaths of Colvin and French photojournalist Rémi Ochlik. The film is a powerful, at times uncomfortably intimate account of a moment in Syrian history, while Conroy’s compelling testimony is a touching tribute to Colvin’s unwavering passion for reporting hard truths to the world, and the stories of those directly affected by violence.
