    Release Date:

    Gene Hackman and Nick Nolte deliver tour de force performances in this riveting jigsaw puzzle that triumphantly combines politics and romance, turmoil and destiny into an exciting and entertaining drama. From an edgy and maliciously smart script about three reporters caught in a political revolution, and a love triangle, this sure fire thriller co-starring Joanne Cassidy and Oscar nominee Ed Harris will grab you with heart pounding suspense and never let go.

    Russell Price (Nolte) is a gutsy photographer who gets caught between his love for reporter Claire Stryder (Joanna Cassidy) and his friendship with her husband Alex Grezier (Hackman). He`s also caught in the horns of a dilemma where he`s asked to take sides instead of pictures in the war between the Nicaraguan government and the Sandinista rebels. But when he loses sight of his objectively and becomes involved in the skirmish, Russell could lose both hands and his life, as he comes Under Fire from all sides...
