War, journalism and truth

In the winter of 2012, journalist Marie Colvin and photographer Paul Conroy travelled to Homs to cover the Syrian civil war. More specifically, they wanted to report on the civilians who were stuck between the opposing forces and under siege by their own government. When government forces attacked an international media center, Colvin and Conroy were themselves caught in the crossfire, and only one of them made it home alive. Based on the critically acclaimed book, UNDER THE WIRE is an intense and captivating documentary about war, journalism and truth.
