Arms dealers from several companies vie to sell the most expensive and highest tech weapons to a South American dictator. There are complications; understanding the exact nature of how 'gifts' are used to grease the wheels of a sale, a religious conversion from one of the salesman and a romance that begins to grow between two competitors, not to mention the imminient financial collapse of one of the companies if they don't make this sale.

Some scenes, involving helicopters and explosives, were shot at Indian Dunes Motorcycle Park in Valencia, California. This was the same location where, the year before, scenes involving a helicopter and explosions were being filmed for John Landis' segment for "Twilight Zone; The Movie". In that instance, tragedy struck when the helicopter, hovering amid explosions, had its tail rotor destroyed by the heat from the explosions, causing the chopper to spin out of control and was sent spinning into a shallow river below, and killing actor Vic Morrow and two small children, who were attempting to cross the river at the time. The helicopters main rotor struck the three, killing them instantly. Morrow and one of the children were decapitated, while the second child was crushed to death. See more

Washing it was sheer stupidity!
