    In Lord of War, Nicolas Cage plays Yuri Orlov, a young Ukranian immigrant who seizes his slice of the American Dream by selling an Uzi. This triggers Yuri`s brilliant arms dealing career and over the next 25 years, he sells guns around the world "to every army but the Salvation Army." Yuri`s suits become as sharp as his patter when business booms in the chaotic aftermath of the Cold War. His only obstacles: his junkie brother`s wavering morality (Jared Leto), the one relentless Interpol cop he cannot pay-off (Ethan Hawke), his trophy wife (Bridget Monynahan), who may not turn a blind eye forever, old school rival death merchant (Ian Holm) and a psychotic African dictator (Eamonn Walker) whose pleasure is the business of war. But Yuri`s greatest danger comes from his lifelong enemy... his conscience.
