How to Steal a Country documents the Gupta family’s rise from flea-market shoe salesmen to owners of a massively corrupt business empire in South Africa linked to the core of the South African government – all in the space of less than 10 years. The documentary unfolds like a suspenseful forensic detective story, as one huge bribery scandal after another is uncovered, all involving the top echelons of political power and several well-known multinational corporations. How to Steal a Country is a devastating exposure of greed, complicity and the outright theft of a nation’s resources, as it lays bare the entire operation behind the trillion-rand plunder of the South African state.
