Synopsis

Steve and Sue are sent to a small farming town where their employer — a big energy company — plans to extract reserves of natural gas through the environmentally controversial method of fracking. Their task is to convince the local people to sell the rights to drill on their land. It should be easy since the failing economy has left the place in deprivation and despair, but some members of the community protest. The more Steve and Sue try to persuade them, the more they are forced to confront their own conscience, and consider the value of the new friendships they have begun to form.
