Harper Harris, the renowned foreign correspondent and photojournalist, finds herself at the apex of her career. At the behest of her agent, therapist, and adopted daughter, she has decided to forego covering any more conflict zones. While in Ljubljana presenting a retrospective of her work, she is approached by a woman who claims to be the ex-wife of a man with whom Harper was romantically involved for a brief time twenty-four years ago during the Siege of Sarajevo.
Out of a mixture of misplaced guilt, obligation and her inherent curiosity at the prospect of a story, she reluctantly agrees to accompany the woman to Kurdistan to search for her missing daughter and ex-husband. What Harper finds is not unexpected: a landscape filled with refugee camps, the ruins of war, unbridled violence, and the ever present specter of terrorism. All the while, her traveling companion, Adele Marchand, proves to be more than Harper bargained for as they seek to discover the fate of the missing father and daughter.
