Synopsis

This documentary reveals the shocking realities of the global arms trade - the only business that counts its profits in billions and its losses in human lives. It unravels a number of the world's largest and most corrupt arms deals through those involved in perpetrating and investigating them. The film shows why this trade accounts for almost 40% of all corruption in global trade, and how it operates in a parallel legal universe, in which the national security elite who drive it are seldom prosecuted for their often illegal actions. And it posits alternatives through the experience of a peace activist and war correspondent, as well as through the voice of Eduardo Galeano who contributed selections from his stories for the film.
