Pulling the lid off the international arms trade – an indictment of global capitalism

Weapons manufacturers, world leaders, and arms dealers are under scrutiny in this eye-popping assemblage of news, archival footage, and shocking commentary from former participants in the arms trade. No one is spared in this exposé of the shadow world of corruption, slush funds, drones, illicit bed partners, and boundless greed. In this dark circle, the aim is to perpetuate war in order to generate cash, no matter the expense.
