    • Synopsis
    • Kathleen Jacobs, internationally-renowned conflict journalist, returns to Johannesburg with injuries sustained on assignment in the Democratic Republic of Congo. However, more disturbing than her physical wounds, is the shocking story she has uncovered; one which may yet destroy her. Kat obsessively strives to publish her findings, but her blind commitment to investigative journalism is in sharp conflict with her instincts as a mother and a lover, forcing her to make choices that will determine not only her own fate, but that of those around her.
