CNN combat camerawoman, Margaret Moth, risks it all to put the viewer inside the conflict until a fateful injury gets in the way of her appetite for danger and adrenaline.

Margaret Moth walks the razor's edge between sanity and chaos. Her mystery and beauty bewitches lovers and her confidence intimidates powerful men. Moth stares down danger and she confronts those that perpetuate it. In vivid, emotional dioramas, we see what Moth and her camera crew felt; the nightmare dreamscapes of war. In footage – both what she shot, the production shot, and others – we go on a rollicking ride through love, truth, and war. Early on in her career she covers conflicts in the Middle East before fatally, she is sent to Sarajevo to cover the Bosnian war.
