War photographer Rebecca Thomas (Juliette Binoche) is seriously injured during a suicide attack in Kabul, and promises her husband (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) back in Ireland to never go back to another conflict. Director Erik Poppe based his drama on personal experiences from when he was working as a war photographer. Apart from asking the usual questions about where the line should be drawn for a person who has a family to lose, he also paints a provocative portrait of a selfish person who not only risks her life but also puts other people in danger. Well-acted, but settles too often for the expected.
