We visit Korea's DMZ where drones fly back and forth across the border, raising serious questions about the military capabilities of both countries and the power of drones to affect regional conflicts. In Nairobi, Kenya, we learn about the potential for drones in developing nations, and how a nationwide ban has halted progress in that country. And, in the Bay Area of California, we learn how one organization is trying to send aid to Syrian war victims via a fleet of humanitarian drones.
Plus, we'll learn what happens when practically everyone has drones — from the major world powers to the smallest non-state actors, including Hezbollah, Hamas, and ISIS.
