TRAILER COMING SOON!

SYNOPSIS


Between 2011 - 2016 drilling for oil in America reached an unprecedented peak, setting off a modern day gold rush in one of the most rural communities in the country: Trenton, North Dakota.

Kalie Rider and her older brother Jed are both striving to rebuild farming in their family, having suffered the foreclosure of their parents’ farm during the traumatic 1980s farm crisis. When their uncle Roger makes a decision to sell some of his land it sets off a domino effect of industrialization.

Now, with the Trenton church being eyed for a diesel refinery, the community becomes riven by competing interests. While Jed faces the possibility of having to uproot his young family and move away, Kalie learns to organize and resist.
