Mikhail Khodorkovsky, formerly the wealthiest man in Russia, was arrested at gunpoint on October 25, 2003. After challenging the absolute power of Vladimir Putin, his oil company, YUKOS, was seized, followed by a trial that caused international outrage. Khodorkovsky's rise and fall are a chilling metaphor for the violent political and socioeconomic changes occurring in Russia in the last two decades. This program looks at how liberty and the rule of law have become casualties of the new Russia in a compelling scenario of political intrigue in an oil dependent economy.

He asks if family incomes have never been higher in the western world, property values are soaring, if conspicuous consumption and material wealth have never been so evident, why are we so unhappy?
