A Mighty Heart

Synopsis

A Mighty Heart is the heart-breaking true story of the disappearance and death of Daniel Pearl, the South Asian bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal, who was kidnapped in Pakistan in 2002. The story is told through the eyes of his pregnant wife Mariane Pearl.

Mariane Pearl's bravery is remarkable and her courage, along with that of her late husband, serve to make A Mighty Heart, despite Danny Pearl's heart-breaking death, a profound and ultimately uplifting love story. It is also a fitting tribute to a dedicated reporter not a hero, but an ordinary man. An ordinary hero.
