2000. Network news anchor Franklin Harris, the network's chief news cameraman Duck, and aspiring newsman Benjamin Strauss, a recent Harvard Journalism graduate who only got the job with the network as the son of one of the network VPs, are in Bosnia to cover the official fifth anniversary ceremony of the end of the Bosnian War. Who they run into there is Simon Hunt, who once worked for the network as one of its most fearless (i.e. crazy) and acclaimed war correspondents, that acclaim and employment which abruptly ended in 1994 when, covering this war, he had a very public on-air meltdown. While Simon was fired having struggled since to find any meaningful employment in the field, Duck, who was his loyal cameraman for nine years, got promoted to the cushy New York studio job in having filmed that meltdown, which is still covered in journalism school. Regardless of having been shot four times without Simon ever having gotten more than a scratch in those nine years, Duck still considers Simon not only a friend but the best time he's had in his career. Simon is able to convince Duck to delay his booty-call vacation to Greece in having a lead on what could be the biggest global story: the location of the most wanted Bosnian War criminal Dragoslav Bogdanovic, better known as The Fox in his penchant for fox hunting. Simon's goal is for an exclusive interview. Tagging along is Benjamin who, smelling that Simon and Duck are working on a big story, wants to prove to his VP father that he isn't the screw-up his father believes him to be. It isn't until they embark on this venture that Simon tells them the second part of his mission: to capture The Fox in order to collect the $5 million reward money, Simon basically penniless. With their lives at risk every step of the way, they may stumble onto an equally big story with greater implications, telling that story only if they are able to survive this ordeal.
