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.

Well, I can't say that I did get all the details of the plot and I think that is not entirly my fault but also the directors for switching between the different storylines all too often without apperent reason. This almost constant switching doesn't make the movie more intriguing but left me as the viewer a little confused from time to time...
Additionally the movie doesn't feature the right mix of action, drama, comedy and/or intrigues and because there are nearly no plot twists I just never was pulled in.
