The North Dakota fracking industry has drawn thousands of men from all over the world, causing severe strain on existing infrastructure in Williston ND.
Men gamble on finding work, sometimes borrowing money for a one way ticket, hoping they will find work once they arrive.
Some are not terribly employable in a competitive environment that favours the young, strong and able. Additionally, there is a housing shortage causing rent to be unaffordable if a place can be found at all.
Pastor Jay Reinke (Lutheran, Missouri Synod) responds by starting the "Overnighters" project at his church in an effort to get men off the streets.
This a documentary about Jay Reinke, his family, the Lutheran parish, the community, the media, the men who travel far in the hope of bettering their lives.
