Summary "One of the top oil executives in Venezuela describes the inner workings of the State Oil Company as "a soap opera", and she should know: she used to write them for 20 years. As oil executives become redefined as "social activists" she rails against corruption while trying to find social projects to spend oil revenue on. Meanwhile, another top executive has resigned in protest at Chavez using oil money to buy votes, while oil workers are ready to fight the "forces of imperialism" to defend him. Following the soap-opera format, the viewer is left to ponder whether Chavez is a romantic hero using his petrol dollars to wipe out poverty and inequality, or a power-mad villain squandering the country's oil resources to feed his power dreams"--SBS website
