An exclusive depiction of the minds of war photographers -modern heroes who daily face the perishability of life and feed on death. The year is 1999. For the young Georgian Alex Kvatashidze, the war in Chechnya seems far away. This until he falls in love with a French photographer and only days after they meet, decide to accompany her to the war-torn Delegate. Immediately the dream of becoming a war reporter arises, something he unfortunately never succeeds in. On the other hand, he is given insights into their world for 13 years and depicts how occupational life affected them. “Why do you go to war if you do not need?” – may be one of the top questions the director Alex is trying to answer.

On the spot after the film, we have the warphotographer and Helsingborgare Olof Jarlbro, whose report has been seen in everything from “Esquire” to “Arbetaren” and who went illegally across the border to Syria to document the war.
