James Miller Williams is a struggling carriage maker. Ira Jackson is an escaped slave. Hugh Nixon Shaw is a fire and brimstone preacher without a church. Bootjack Mary is a middle aged prostitute. John Henry Fairbanks is a silver spoon land owner. They all have one thing in common, they smell opportunity when oil is discovered in the fields of Black Creek. While some strike it rich with gushers, others luck runs out and wells run dry. The gripping true story highlights the struggles, greed, and racism endured in the intersecting lives of five original Hard Oilers.
"Black Gold tells of the discovery of oil in Lambton County in the 1860's. There are historical figures as well as fictional characters representing many groups of people in the film, bringing to life the story of the early oil boom in North America. This is a great representation of the lifestyle of the settlers in the area; the successes, failures and hardships of the time as well as the various emotions and behaviours demonstrated by each of the characters. It highlights an important time in the history of Canada through the eyes of those that were there."
