On February 13, 2012, two journalists entered war-ravaged Syria. Only one of them returned. Sunday Times war correspondent Marie Colvin and photographer Paul Conroy went to cover the plight of Syrian civilians trapped in Homs, a city under siege and relentless military attack from the Syrian army. UNDER THE WIRE, based on the book by Paul Conroy, tells the incredible story of their fateful mission – and Paul’s epic battle to escape the city to tell the world of his fallen colleague and the plight of the people of Homs. UNDER THE WIRE is a film about real journalism: about war, and an extraordinary commitment to telling the truth, whatever the cost. At the heart of the film is Paul Conroy’s own testimony – he describes his and Marie’s rage at seeing doctors fighting to save innocent lives in makeshift backroom hospitals, women and children cowering in darkened basements, and the spirit of a people fighting to stay alive in the face of horrific attack. The film is told through the voices of the individuals directly involved, all talking to the camera about the story for the first time.
