From acclaimed director Renny Harlin (HERCULES 3D), 5 DAYS OF WAR is an action-packed thriller that sheds light on the complicated politics and danger involved in exposing the truth during wartime. Inspired by the real events of the five-day war between Russia and the Georgian Republic in 2008, this heart-pounding film follows a renegade American journalist (Rupert Friend of TV's HOMELAND), his cameraman (Richard Coyle of TV's COVERT AFFAIRS), and a young schoolteacher (Emmanuelle Chriqui of TV's THE MENTALIST) caught in the combat zone during the first airstrikes. Attempting to broadcast the footage they've captured while under attack, they are met with resistance from international networks fatigued by news of the war. Despite severe opposition, the trio fights to live to tell the truth.
