Synopsis

Documentary charting the corruption, assassination and street rioting that occur in Georgia in the former Soviet Union as its people struggle to build a nation from the rubble of the Soviet collapse. AES Corp, the massive American 'global power company', has purchased the privatised electricity distribution company in Tbilisi, the Georgian capital. AES manager Piers Lewis must now explain to the formerly communist populace that, in this new world, customers pay for their electricity. Meanwhile, the Georgians - from cash-strapped pensioners to the Energy Minister himself - devise ever more clever ways to continue getting it free.
