A self-made Texan businessman rides the biggest oil boom in decades. A Nigerian farmer-turned-activist fights oil spills polluting his land. A Norwegian fisherman’s daughter finds herself in the midst of a dilemma: Should her island open up for oil exploration or not? Together, they tell the story of how and why oil has become so important for our economies and modern lifestyles, but also why continuing to use oil as much as we do may jeopardize all of that: it harms our environment and climate. This is a story about the global battle for the last oil, how it affects three ordinary people and, ultimately, all of us.
