Oil was discovered in Ghana in 2007. The moment oil was discovered, the country began to dream big. They believed that the black gold would bring economic growth and prosperity to the country and the nation.
But what happened? Well, when dreams and globalization meet, things do not always go as you thought.
By 2010, drilling started in Ghana. The country was determined to do better than Nigeria, a country that exports oil but has to import gasoline.
This documentary shows exactly what happened since oil drilling started in Ghana. It shows the impact of oil on lives of people in Ghana.
Did the black gold bring modern life and progress in the country? Or did the country remain deeply mudded into poverty?
