Leave it to Tina Fey to find the funny side of a war zone.

The Sisters star plays a journalist who gets assigned to cover the war in Afghanistan in the first trailer for her new movie Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

Fey’s character takes the assignment to escape her boring desk job and depressing boyfriend – problems an Afghani woman calls “the most American white lady story I’ve ever heard.”

Along the way she meets Margot Robbie while stationed in Kabul, who informs her that while she might only be a 6 or 7 in New York’s dating scene, in Afghanistan she’s more like a 9 or 10. So what does that make Robbie? Around a 15.

Billy Bob Thornton also stars as Fey’s tough talking army liaison, and Alfred Molina joins the cast as an overly flirty Afghani leader who bonds with the reporter over some AK-47 fire.

In the best scene in the clip, Fey is filming Kabul’s first licensed female driver, who promptly crashes her car backwards into a cluster of market stands. “That sucks. That sucks for women,” Fey says to herself.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot hits theaters March 4.
