Exiles v Oligarchs

A decade after the Arab Spring saw pro-democracy movements sweep across the Middle East, many repressive regimes remain in power – especially in the oil-rich Gulf region.

Even British visitors are not safe from their crackdowns, risking accusations of spying for MI6 and life in jail.

But instead of facing sanctions for their human rights abuses, Gulf oligarchs are buying up luxury properties in the UK, watching horse races with the royal family and studying at Sandhurst.

This film follows the fight back by exiles from one Gulf state, Bahrain, as they chase oligarchs around London and the Home Counties, in a battle to keep their dreams of democracy alive.
