FULL SYNOPSIS

Filmmakers Jason Bourque and Nick Bicanic explore the trend of private militaries around the world in this documentary examining the increasingly blurred distinction between soldier and mercenary. In a time when powerful multinational corporations are contracting private mercenaries to fight wars, the risks of allowing profit-motivated conglomerates to outsource war are chilling. Who do these private armies answer to, and what are the motivations of their financers? The private military draws in over $100 billion in annual revenues, and despite the fact that there are over 70,000 "employees" in Iraq alone, the majority of the public remains completely unaware of it. 300 star Gerard Butler narrates a film that aims to open the eyes of everyday citizens to a potentially disastrous situation. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
