A Thousand Times Good Night (Tusen ganger god natt)

Rebecca is one of the worlds top war photographers. On assignment while photographing a female suicide bomber in Kabul, she gets to near, and gets badly hurt.

Back home another bomb drops. Her husband and daughters can no longer bear the thought of her dying while at work. She is given an ultimatum: Her work, or her family life. The choice seems obvious.
