Shadow World reveals the shocking realities of the global arms trade – the only business that counts its profits in billions and its losses in human lives. The film unravels a number of the world’s largest and most corrupt arms deals through those involved in perpetrating and investigating them. It illustrates 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.
