Summary
"Gerta Pohorylle meets Andre Friedmann in Paris in 1935 and is drawn to his fierce dedication to justice, journalism, and the art of photography.

Summary
A young German woman named Gerta Pohorylle and a young Hungarian man named Endre Friedmann meet in Paris in 1935. Both Communists, Jewish, exiled, and photographers, they decide to change their names in order to sell their work more easily, and so they become Gerda Taro and Robert Capa. With these new identities, they travel to Spain and begin to document the Spanish Civil War. Two years later, tragedy will befall them - but until then, theirs is a romance for the ages. Based on the true story of these legendary figures, this is a moving tribute to all journalists and photographers who lose their lives to show us the world's daily transformations.
