How does traumatic news impact the men and women who cover it. Mike Walter loved chasing the big story, but on one September morning, the biggest story of his career chased him down. On that day, a jet rained from the sky, piercing the Pentagon, and shattering his emotional well-being. Now Walter turns the camera on himself and his profession as he and other journalists go to New Orleans after a photojournalist suffers a mental breakdown. The result is a raw and gripping look at this profession.
