Set in a 19th century European village, this stop-motion, animated feature follows the story of Victor (Johnny Depp) who is travelling home with his friend to get married to his fiancee Victoria (Emily Watson). The two stop to rest in the woods, and as a joke, Victor puts his wedding ring on a finger-shaped stick in the ground and says his wedding vows. The stick turns out to be a rotted finger belonging to a murdered girl (Helena Bonham-Carter), who returns as a zombie and insists that she is now Victor's lawfully wedded wife.

Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage) is a wily globetrotting arms dealer who dodges bullets and betrayal as he schemes his way to the top of his profession. Through some of the deadliest war zones, Yuri struggles to stay one step ahead of a relentless Interpol agent, his business rivals, even some of his customers who include many of the world's most notorious dictators.
