A photographer and a doctor interviewing prisoners on the Afghanistan border are swept up in an insurrection that turns brother against brother in this captivating tale of heroism and betrayal. Charlie Palmer is an American photojournalist. Dr. Victor Davis is a doctor who displays great empathy for his patients. In the middle of an interview session with a group of prisoners, chaos suddenly erupts. Now, as Dr. Davis tends to the wounded and dying, photojournalist Palmer boldly journeys onto the battlefield to document the horror and confusion of war. Yet despite the violence that threatens to swallow both men whole, the occasional act of bravery offers some hope for the future. The present is what these two men need concern themselves with at the moment though, and if they don't escape Afghanistan as quickly as possible they may not live to share their remarkable stories with the world.
