An international scandal involving two underage prostitutes seems to be the chance for him to prove his value by delivering the background to the scoop. He is ready to reach the heights of good journalism and deliver a good story, the task however turns out to be trickier than expected and the more he approaches his goal, the more he treads on his moral limits. Through the journalist’s eyes, this complex dramatackles some moral dilemmas in questioning how far we may go to justify success.

Un scandale international impliquant deux prostituées mineures semble être l'occasion pour lui de prouver sa valeur. Il est prêt à risquer beaucoup pour faire ses preuves. Une histoire captivante sur l'abus, ce drame s'attaque à des dilemmes moraux en demandant jusqu'où pouvons-nous aller pour atteindre nos objectifs et devancer les autres. http://
