It is a well-known fact that private military companies are becoming significant players in conflicts around the world, supplying not merely the goods but also the services of war. Large parts of both the logistics and the actual warfare have been outsourced to private companies who want to maximise profit. They hire cheap labour from the poorest parts of the world. The gravest example is the employment of former child soldiers. The film explores how globalisation has changed the industry of warfare. How is it possible that companies can hire former child soldiers despite the codes of conduct that have been formulated for the private military industry?
