Synopsis

The larger-than-life story of Frontline TV News, a cooperative of independent journalists responsible for some of the most memorable news images of the 1990s "If you are in a battle and you are filming, your adrenalin rises to a very high level. You can get hooked on that. . . . You have to get in and get your pictures out. It's a wonderful challenge." Remember turning on the television and seeing shots of rockets fired at night in the first Gulf War, the first massacre victims in Kosovo, the U.S. bomb that killed women and children in a bunker in Baghdad, and Mullah Omar declaring holy war for the Taliban? The men and women at the Frontline news agency believed the public should see the true horrors of war and courageously went where other news organizations feared to tread. Risking everything to show the truth, they traveled the world's most dangerous places in a quest to live life to the full, a quest some paid for with their lives. This is their story.
