Summary
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. After being hit by a grenade, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable with London's elite as she is confronting dictators. 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
