Oil is our daily energy staple. Or is it a drug our society has been flying high on for over a century? And isn't it time we started getting ready to detox?

The filmmaker sets up temporary home in a petrol station and engages Alain, the petrol attendant, in his search for answers. Together they turn that symbolic microcosm - where money meets energy - into a stage where they re-evaluate their own beliefs and carry out experiments to illustrate the extent of our addiction and dependence. For good measure, they call in energy and environment experts to take stock and predict the different paths - some optimistic, some less so - we may have to go down in the future.
