Filmed over five years, this epic, true tale explores what happens when ambitious people uncover a massive and exquisitely rare pot of gold in one of the poorest places on earth. In 2007, a US company discovers the first oil in the history of the West African republic of Ghana. What follows is a twisting tale of greed and deception with global implications, told by director Rachel Boynton (Our Brand Is Crisis) with razor-sharp journalistic skill.
