Based on actual events that took place during the five-day Russia-Georgia conflict. The short war began Aug. 8, 2008, when Georgian forces attacked the border territory in South Ossetia. Russia recognized the territory's independence and subsequently routed Georgian forces; tensions have remained high ever since. The drama involves an American journalist (Chriqui) and his cameraman who get caught in the crossfire in Georgia and then have to deal with their obligation to be impartial journalists. Kilmer will take the role of a journalist involved in covering last year's military conflict between Russia and Georgia, with Andy Garcia as real-life President Mikheil Saakashvili.
