Sidney Schanberg e il suo interprete e guida Dith Pran vengono mandati in Cambogia per compiere una cronaca sulla guerra in quel paese tra i khmer rossi e il governo del premier Lon Nol. Tra i due si stabilisce un fedele rapporto di amicizia e stima, che li spinge ad una proficua collaborazione sulla diffusione di informazioni di un paese sempre più devastato dalla guerra civile e dai bombardamenti americani (il presidente Richard Nixon vuole infatti impedire che la Cambogia si organizzi e dia aiuto al Vietnam del Nord contro gli Stati Uniti).
