Since 2010, North Dakota has known an incredible oil boom, followed by a bust as it often happens. This film leads us into the life of men and women who came here from all over the country, leaving everything behind, hoping to find work and the dignity they had lost.
Sacrificed on the altar of greed and profit, they  realize that today their dream is tied to the price of oil.
