In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin is one of the most admired war correspondents of today. She is fearless and rebellious, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe.

Her mission to show the true cost of war leads her, along with war photographer Paul Conroy, to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives.
