Harrison Lloyd, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Newsweek photojournalist, travels on his last assignment to the former Yugoslavia in 1991, during the Croatian War of Independence. While there, he is presumed to have been killed in a building collapse. His wife travels to the region to find him, believing him to be in the city of Vukovar. Travelling through the war-torn landscape, she arrives in the city, and bears witness to the massacre which took place there.
