In recent years, a small community in North Dakota has found itself at the center of a vast oil fracking operation that has drawn people from across the country in order to work the fields. The surge in population and the influx of oil money have turned the once quiet town into an overcrowded haven of iniquity and lawlessness. Peddlers of sex and drugs ply their trades openly, seeking to separate the flush oilmen from their hard-earned cash. When a young woman is savagely murdered, a reporter, a pair of police detectives and a Mexican bounty hunter decide to investigate, but in this modern day version of an Old Western boomtown, who can say where their efforts will lead?
