Producer: Les Productions du Lagon / Director: Jean-Pierre Carlon

While the financial crisis plunges America into recession and unemployment, Williston, a small town in North Dakota, sitting on top of one of the largest reserve of shale oil, lives through a genuine "black gold rush".

Driven by some common hope, thousands of men throw themselves once again into a desperate rush towards the mythical American Dream, at any cost.
Today, they realize that their future is hanging to the price of the oil barrel.
