Lord of War

The rise and fall of arms dealer Yuri Orlov who started out in the early 80’s buying and selling guns small time in his local surroundings, until he realised the big bucks were made by fuelling wars all over the world. Throughout the 90’s Yuri was a very rich man working alongside an African psychotic warlord and his son. With the occasional help of his unstable younger brother Vitaly, Yuri and his new model wife Ava lived in the lap of luxury, but federal agent Jack Valentine was always on his tale. Eventually all the weapons and secrets catch up with Yuri and his career quickly sinks in a violent hell and his future becomes unclear.
