Emmy award-winner Paul Devlin (SlamNation) captures a comic clash of cultures that combusts when an American energy company, AES, tries to transform the dysfunctional electricity distribution system in Tbilisi, capital of the former Soviet Republic of Georgia.
Struggling against corruption, assassination, and street rioting, AES manager Piers Lewis must convince the Georgians to pay for, rather than steal electricity. This "compelling and passionate tale of a country rebuilding itself" (Hollywood Reporter) has "suspense, comedy and some colorful characters" (Variety) and develops into an "increasingly absurdist standoff between Communist-inspired cynicism and tenacious capitalist zeal." (New York Daily News).
