Plot Synopsis

Based on the book by Robert Wiener. In August 1990, CNN producer Robert Wiener, along with his producing partner Ingrid Formanek, led their crew to the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, a few months before the Gulf War started. With the ''Big Three'' networks scrambling to get the story, Wiener put aside personal safety to cover the crisis . Despite all obstacles the CNN crew made history by becoming the only American network to broadcast continuous coverage live from Baghdad as the war erupted.
