Synopsis

While the world is watching the 2008 Olympic Games, American war correspondent Thomas Anders and his cameraman Sebastian record the Russian invasion of Georgia. After filming an air strike that devastates the village of Vaziani, Anders and Sebastian work with a Georgian teacher named Tatia to get survivors to a military hospital in Gori, returning to help her find her missing family and film more evidence of the strike. After being captured and escaping, their priorities are clear: They must survive, rescue Tatia, and get back to Gori to ensure that their footage reaches the world.
