Based on journalist Kim Baker’s memoirs, this comedy-drama stars Tina Fey as Baker, a journalist who is sent on what is meant to be a short assignment to Afghanistan. Baker enjoys her time there so much that she ends up staying for years, often putting her life at risk to get interesting insight and stories from soldiers and civilians in the area. As her relationship with her boyfriend in United States unravels, she begins a new one with flirtatious photographer Iain (Martin Freeman). But her commitment to her job is tested when Iain is kidnapped and Baker must use her resources and wits to help him.
