Jan Grarup lives a life in a state of emergency. As a war photographer, he often risks his life. Back in Copenhagen, he is a father of four. He suddenly finds himself a single parent when his ex-wife falls ill with cancer. His work in the urban war zone of Mosul, where he follows the advance of the Iraqi forces against the Islamic State, must be balanced with his private life as a sole provider. Jan has to rebuild the trust of his children after many years of living a fleeting lifestyle, but he still wishes to be the best war photographer in the world. How do roadside bombs and snipers fit into being responsible for four children? The film is a psychological portrait of a man that has documented the horrors of war for 25 years, but who suddenly has to face a new, internal struggle.
