Movie Info

In February of 2012, war correspondent Marie Colvinillegally crossed the border into Syria with her photographer, Paul Conroy. Ignoring the government's refusal to allow foreign journalists into the country, the two were among the first to attempt to cover the story of civilians trapped in the besieged city of Homs, where they found a ravaged war zone that only one of them would ultimately survive. Grippingly recounting their moment-by-moment journey into Homs, UNDER THE WIREis a chilling tribute to the courageous bravery that led Colvin and Conroy to their final mission together.
