Overview

Filmmaker Nicole Torre allows the American public to view their addiction to oil from the unique perspective of the Houston oil tycoons who fuel their private jets with the money we pay at the gas pump.

Now, as domestic oil production continues its sharp decline, the sustainable energy sector searches for a viable alternative to petroleum.
