Two corporate sales partners arrive in a small town to secure drilling rights for a natural-gas company. They believe that due to the economic decline of the town, the people there will accept anything. But they encounter obstacles from a local schoolteacher and the leader of a grassroots campaign.

MUBI's take

Gus Van Sant (Elephant, Milk) directs this tale set in a small rural community in the US, whose members are wooed into selling their land by two charming agents from a big corporation, played by Frances McDormand and Matt Damon. A moving and humane look at a global environmental issue.
