Synopsis: 

"No Man's Land profiles members of a truly rare breed - women war correspondents.

"The film focuses on Janine di Giovanni, an American reporter who covers Sarajevo for London's Sunday Times, and Lyse Doucet who covers the "forgotten war" in Afghanistan for the BBC. As they and a number of other correspondents, including Clare Hollingworth who became a legend covering World War II for the Daily Telegraph, Martha Teichner, and Ann Medina speak of their experiences and personal sacrifices, many common traits are revealed. All are extremely independent, and not one has had a child - Hollingworth's husband even went so far as to divorce her on grounds of desertion.

"As the camera accompanies di Giovanni to visit with 13 year old Zlata Filipovic, whose war diaries have since taken her to the brink of international celebrity, and Doucet in Kabul, where she seems to hear nothing but bad news of friends and acquaintances who have died since her last visit, No Man's Land is a gripping portrait of women who have staked places in a traditionally male profession."
