The discovery of 'black gold' in the North Sea transforms all it touches - including the dreams of five very different individuals.

Joe and Ally each aspire to make their fortunes in business. Mark believes oil can cause political change. Aaron wishes to write his name into scientific history. Robbie only hopes for a better chance in life.

But every wish incurs a price, and the desires spurred by oil will turn old friends into foes - even putting lives in peril.

'Gripping . . . In Kelly's hands, the unfolding of the hunt for oil off the Scottish coast takes on the momentum of a thriller.' Herald (Scotland)
