Alex Randal (Stephen Moyer), a young reporter on the make, decides, without knowing anything about the situation, to go to Beirut on October 23, 1983, when he hears a radio report about suicide trucks exploding on both an American base and a French base, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of soldiers. Seduced by a gifted and enigmatic photographer, Julia Muller (Anne Parillaud), Randal finds a capitol torn by civil war, where political, financial and strategic interests intertwine.
The start of the movie is a bit unclear, but the war situation that follows is clear enough. The fact that everybody acts according to his or her own personal agenda gives an interesting story: trust no one, not even the ones you can trust. Shows the absurdity of the press shooting pictures of soldiers shooting people.
