When An Iraqi Journalist Goes Missing

* Note: This is the first episode in a series. You can find the second episode here. Also, this story contains strong language and sounds of war.

When a journalist goes missing in Iraq, his friends and family have to figure out how to find him.

We follow their search operation as it unfolds, with recordings that span years – from a battlefield in Iraq, to a phone call with the captors, and alongside the brothers and close friends as they hunt for clues.

Sebastian Meyer documents the story of his friend and the past decade of Kurdish history in Under Every Yard Of Sky.
