Everything is connected.

The Middle Eastern oil industry is the backdrop of this tense drama, which weaves together numerous story lines. Bennett Holiday is an American lawyer in charge of facilitating a dubious merger of oil companies, while Bryan Woodman, a Switzerland-based energy analyst, experiences both personal tragedy and opportunity during a visit with Arabian royalty. Meanwhile, veteran CIA agent Bob Barnes uncovers an assassination plot with unsettling origins.

  • a.k.a. Syriana - Korruption ist alles

Der langjährige CIA-Agent und Terrorismusexperte Robert Baer muss mit Erschrecken feststellen, dass die CIA trotz wachsender Terrorgefahr seine Budgets kürzt. Gleichzeitig widerfährt dem Öl-Makler Bryan Woodman und seiner Frau Julie eine familiäre Tragödie, durch die er sich mit dem idealistischen persischen Prinzen Nasir anfreundet. Außerdem wird der Anwalt Bennett Holiday von Gewissensbissen geplagt, nachdem er die fragwürdige Fusion zweier Öl-Konzerne einfädelte.

France French (Français)

L'héritier du trône d'un émirat arabe, le Prince Nasir, réformiste et progressiste, décide d'accorder les droits de forage de gaz naturel à une compagnie chinoise, au détriment du géant texan Connex Oil. Connex rachète alors la petite compagnie Killen, une fusion qui attire l'attention du Ministère de la Justice à Washington. Benett Holiday, ambitieux avocat du cabinet Sloan Whiting, veille au bon déroulement de cette opération douteuse. Bob Barnes, vétéran de la CIA qui se préparait à "pantoufler", se voit proposer une dernière mission : éliminer le prince Nasir. Bryan Woodman, expert en ressources énergétiques, se rend à un gala organisé par le Prince Nasir. Son jeune fils meurt accidentellement lors de cette soirée. Ces événements auront une incidence directe sur la vie d'un jeune ouvrier pakistanais de la Connex.
