5 Days of War
Inspired by the real events of the swift-but devastating-five-day war between Russia and the Georgian Republic in 2008, this vivid, heart-pounding film centers around a renegade American journalist (Rupert Friend), his cameraman (Richard Coyle), and Tatia (Emmanuelle Chriqui); a young Georgian schoolteacher caught in the combat zone during the first Russian airstrikes against Georgia.
As the three attempt to escape to safety, they witness-and document-the devastation from the full-scale crossfire and cold-blooded murder of innocent civilians. They desperately attempt to broadcast the footage they've captured while under attack from the Russian soldiers and local mercenaries, but are met with resistance from American and international networks either shorthanded from covering the Beijing Olympics or simply fatigued by war news.
The trio realizes their survival is paramount, so they can live to broadcast the truth.
