Granted unprecedented access to the inner workings of Dallas-based oil company Kosmos Energy, director Rachel Boynton (Our Brand Is Crisis) tracks the collision between Third and First World economies as Kosmos discovers a possibly oil-rich, untapped region off of Ghana’s coast, with a potential multibillion dollar windfall awaiting the company. Simultaneously, a group of masked Nigerian militants who have seen firsthand the deleterious effect of these operations take matters into their own hands, no longer content to wait for profit to trickle down. A multifaceted treatise on greed and corruption that speaks vitally to our modern condition,Big Men paints a complex portrait that vilifies none and implicates us all.
