Summary
Over the years, Nigeria has become an economy based almost entirely on the mining of crude oil. But having a single economic focus has not kept the country safe from violent rifts and factionalism - indeed, rebel groups have regularly battled the government for control of oil pipelines while attacking the installations of foreign oil companies. Meanwhile, those companies often came up short in their obligations to maintain and repair the infrastructure that keeps oil flowing. This film illustrates what resulted from the chaos, both military and corporate, that engulfed Nigeria's foremost industry between 2003 and 2009: case after case of oil spilling from a damaged pipeline, with tremendous commercial and ecological ramifications. In retrospect, is sabotage largely to blame, or are the aloof, profit-driven corporations? Is the conflict really over now? It depends on whom you ask - but this documentary faces the issue head-on as it searches for answers
