Crammed into open boats and armed with ancient AK-47s, they range up to a thousand miles from home shores in Somalia. No one knows how many die at sea. But occasionally they hit the jackpot, seizing vessels and crews to be ransomed for millions of dollars. This is a war that's estimated to have cost the world economy as much as $18 billion in a single year. Lawyer turned award-winning filmmaker John Boyle takes us with him in this investigation into modern-day piracy.
