A film by Fraser Denholm exploring the perceived wealth of Aberdeen as the city at the centre of the European Oil Industry, while on the other side of the equation it is a city with areas of multiple deprivation, insufficient infrastructure for the heavy industry it supports and a city council dealing with a £150 Million deficit. An open discussion on the issues raised in the film will follow.
