Matt Damon and Frances McDormand star in this ecological drama as two energy company representatives facing opposition from a rural community. Corporate hot-shot Steve Butler (Damon) and his colleague Sue Thomason (McDormand) arrive in the economically depressed Pennsylvanian farming town of McKinley to try and persuade local landowners to sell their mineral drilling rights to their employer, Global Crosspower Solutions. With a reputation for getting results at a relatively small cost, Steve is confident he'll soon have the locals signed up to a deal. But when local school science teacher Frank Yates (Hal Holbrook) raises concerns about the drilling process known as 'fracking', and environmental supporter Dustin Noble (John Krasinski) decides to start a grassroots campaign against Global, Steve suddenly realises that the goalposts have shifted.
