A straightforward, eye-opening look at what it describes as "the culture of greed and corruption in Nigeria" with the "Fuel Subsidy Scam of 2011" as the backdrop.

The film comes from Ishaya Bako, and was supported by the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA).

The film, uploaded to the web earlier this month, has been stirring up lots of conversation about its subject- conversation that many hope will lead to action that will reverse trends.

It has the blessing of celebrated and vocal Nobel Prize-winning Nigerian playwright and poet, Wole Soyinka, who opens the film with a prologue.

Watch and learn like I did (it's just under 30 minutes long):
