Summary:
An intimate portrait of job-seekers desperately chasing the broken American Dream to the tiny oil boom town of Williston, North Dakota. With the town lacking the infrastructure to house the overflow of migrants, a local pastor starts the controversial 'overnighters' program, allowing down-and-out workers a place to sleep at the church. His well-meaning project immediately runs into resistance with his community, forcing the clergyman to make a decision which leads to profound consequences.

Documentary filmmaker Jesse Moss turns his lens on the influx of migrants seeking to profit from the discovery of oil in North Dakota's Bakken shale, and probes the community uproar that follows when some of the newcomers offered shelter by a compassionate Lutheran minister are revealed to be sex offenders. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
