Synopsis: A powerful story of greed, murder and corruption in the murky waters of the volatile oil-rich Niger Delta region of Nigeria, Black Gold is an epic film about environmental justice and the fight over the control of the scarce oil resources that the world runs on.
The line between good and evil is blurred as corrupt government officials, greedy oil companies and violent rebels go on a war path over oil spills and degradation of the land, caused by oil exploration.
