In the early 1990s, former British soldier Vaughan Smith helps set up Frontline Television, a company of free-lance TV photographers. He covers the Persian Gulf War and gets some of the only combat video of U.S. forces advancing into Iraq. While working in Kosovo, Smith survives a sniper's bullet when it lodges in the cell phone he's carrying.
