Small arms are the real weapons of mass destruction, killing more than half a million people a year, spreading like a disease and destablizing entire regions. Beginning in the gun markets of Somalia, we witness their horrific impact. But no guns are made in Somalia.

From France to South Africa, Bosnia, Moldova, the United States and Canada, Devil's Bargain examines the ways in which guns slip from legal to illicit markets. From dealers, to pilots, to end-users, to the victims, we discover a largely unregulated trade in what has become the globalization of death.

When 200,000 AK-47s go missing from Bosnia, activists call for an International Treaty to curb the trade. But it's blocked by the super power, and loopholes "big enough for an Antonov to fly through" continue to allow the flow of guns that destabilize our world.
