Black Gold is the story of murder, greed and corruption in the restive Niger Delta region of Nigeria. The film speaks of environmental injustice and the fight over control of the oil resources and revenue largely generated from this region.

It is the story of one local community’s struggle against big oil corporations and their determination to win the rights for their land and their livelihood. Locals are caught between the crossfire after a devastating Warri pipeline explosion and are forced to choose either protest and action or resorting to violence and kidnapping.
