    • Synopsis
    • Oil on Water follows two journalists into the depths of the Niger Delta - Rufus, green but enthusiastic and Zaq, his mentor, aged and cynical - as they investigate the kidnapping of the wife of a European oil industry Executive. But "the story is not always the ultimate goal," as Zaq enunciates to Rufus at the beginning of their Conradian journey along the tributaries of the river Niger. Their quest for truth will take on more ambiguous and unexpected twists.
