Synopsis[edit]

Kathleen Jacobs, a renowned conflict journalist returns home after a near fatal-incident cutting short her assignment in the Congo. Her mission, while incomplete, is still a success; she uncovers what could lead to an incredible scoop. When Kat pitches the story to her editor, he turns her down - a strange decision for a man always on a quest for a headline. Kathleen, however, is determined to break the story; a decision that pits her against major political forces. When she refuses to back off despite numerous “incidents", Kat suddenly finds herself on the run, aided only by two ex's; her ex-husband and an ex-military consultant. What ensues is a cat-and-mouse chase that risks everything. Not only Kat's career and reputation are on the Line, but also her life, as well as that of her family.
