Salim Amin, the only child of acclaimed photojournalist Mohamed 'Mo' Amin, recollects and reflects on the life of his frequently absent, globe-trotting father. Mo Amin's thirst for breaking news sees him endure weeks of torture, automatic arms fire, explosives and the loss of his left arm, and makes him one of the most decorated news cameramen of all time. This documentary depicts Mo as an unbending, unforgiving man whose hunger for 'the story' propels him to ever greater professional heights, often at the expense of those he cherishes.
