Footage of old and recent war coverage and journalist Marcel Ophuls' own work while in Sarajevo is woven together with interviews of various war correspondents to provide an insider's view of the ethical and philosophical difficulties of covering the insanity of war while clinging to one's own precarious grip on sanity. This in-depth documentary explores topics as diverse as a reporter revealing his own opposition to the war he's covering to the dark truth that, as one subject puts it, "the more horrible the situation, the more successful we become."
