This film, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, is the adaptation of a memoir, specifically from the memoirs of Kim Barker, a journalist who became a war correspondent in several recent contests involving the United States .
Their journey begins in 2002, a year that took them both to Afghanistan and Pakistan, right in the US operation against the Taliban because of the attacks on the Twin Towers in 11S.
In the film we see how difficult it is for a woman to be a war reporter, because it is supposed to be a world of men in which she has no place. In addition, there is the subject of love relationships.
She is going to start a relationship with a Scottish journalist, a colleague of his, a relationship that by the circumstances in which it is given can not end well, because with danger neither thinks clearly.
