Rebecca is a photojournalist who dares to go into dangerous situations to document wars and other world events. Her husband can’t understand why she puts her life on the line when she has two children at home. The film examines Rebecca’s motivations and the tension a family faces when one parent’s work – this time the mother’s – takes them away from home and often into peril. Audiences will recognize Juliette Binoche from “Chocolat” and other well-known films, and Nikolaj Coster-Woldau from “Game of Thrones.”
