War Dogs tells the outrageous true story of two friends, David Packouz (Jonah Hill) and Efraim Diveroli (Miles Teller), who landed a $300 million contract to supply the Afghan National Army with ammunition during the Iraq War. Starting small with low-level military contracts, they soon find themselves in over their heads when they land the massive deal. As they navigate the cutthroat world of international arms dealing, they encounter a cast of shady characters, including corrupt officials and an arms dealer known only as “the Blond Ghost” (Bradley Cooper). The film follows their meteoric rise to wealth and eventual downfall, exploring the dark side of the American dream and the moral complexities of the arms trade.
