Andrew Niccol (S1m0ne, The Truman Show, Gattaca) is back with a penetrating look at the international arms trade. Set shortly after the end of the Cold War, a small-time arms dealer suddenly finds himself with access to large quantities of cheap Soviet-made weaponry. As he deals to satisfy the demand of his international customers, he has to come to terms with the consequences of his trade, as well as stay ahead of the Interpol agent on his trail.
