Blood and Oil

Naomi Harris stars as Alice Omuka, a young talented PR executive raised and educated in London as the daughter of a wealthy Nigerian businessman. When Alice is sent to work for an international oil services company operating in the Niger Delta, she is thrown unprepared into the unstable, poverty-stricken world where her father grew up. As soon as Alice arrives in Port Harcourt, news breaks that a militant group have kidnapped three Western oil workers. She is tasked with dealing with Claire Unwin (Jodhi May), the distraught wife of one of the hostages, who has unexpectedly turned up desperate to see her husband. What a first appears to be a routine hostage negotiation and handover soon turns into the stuff of nightmares. The shocking reality is far more sinister and complicated – and Alice and Claire quickly discover they cant trust no-one. Determined to find the truth behind her husband’s kidnapping, Claire begs Alice to accompany her into the shanty towns of Port Harcourt and the lawless creeks of the Delta. The two women embark on a terrifying journey into an edgy, chaotic place on the brink of civil breakdown, from which they can only hope to escape alive…
