Sarah Lloyd (MacDowell) embarks on a perilous journey to find Harrison (Strathairn), her husband, colleague and father of her two children. The Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist is missing on an assignment during the Bosnian conflict. He is presumed dead by his associates and his editor, Samuel Brubeck (Armstrong).
But it is Sarah who leaves others in disbelief, hell-bent in her pursuit to find Harrison - dead or alive. Rather than convincing her to turn back, she convinces Harrison's colleagues to forge ahead. In helping Sarah, fellow photojournalists Kyle (Brody), Stevenson (Gleeson) and Harrison's best friend Yeager (Koteas) find a new perspective in the midst of this horrendous battle of brother against brother. Armed solely with their camera lenses, all muster a courage they never knew they had.
