Abstract:

When Anna, an American journalist, travels to Iraq to report on the conflict, she quickly becomes familiar with the grim day-to-day realities of the war. When an Iraqi leader and friend is assassinated, Anna becomes determined to uncover the truth behind his death. As she becomes more entrenched, Anna finds herself pulled between the affections of an American intelligence official and Zaid, a young Iraqi photographer. Following the death of an Iraqi boy at the hands of American soldiers, a perilous chain of events is set off that exposes corrupt associations, blurs the lines of justice, and ultimately leads Anna into grave danger.
