Based on real life experiences of a journalist embedded in the Middle East, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot follows Kim Barker, a Chicago Tribune journalist reporting on Operation Enduring freedom. Tina Fey stars as Barker in this sardonic look at the simultaneously harrowing and darkly absurd early days of the war in Afghanistan. The horrors of I.E.D.s and airstrikes are tempered with a love story that could only happen in a conflict zone when Barker falls for a fellow journalist gunning for the first scoop on the fast unfolding war.
