This film clearly brings out views of the community in Hoima District of western Uganda where oil has recently been discovered. To date there exist no law on oil in Uganda.

The ambiguity in the law as brought together a number of civil society organizations to hold government accountable on behalf of the citizens on matters of oil governance. This film is meant to deepen and widen debate on matters of oil governance in Uganda.
