Covered with the Blood of Jesus

Synopsis

This film explores the condition of the Niger Delta region, where oil companies exploit the wells by closing our eyes to the poverty of the surrounding population, often polluting land and sea. Local youth Richard takes diesel from the pipeline and sells it by the road to pay for college. To him, the oil belongs to his village, not the multinational oil companies who abuse their resources.
