Steve Butler (Matt Damon) is one of two corporate sales people who arrive in a rural town in search of drilling rights. Along with his partner, Sue Thomason (Frances McDormand), Steve is faced with a much greater challenge than initially bargained, brought on by objections from a local schoolteacher (Hal Holbrook)—bringing to light the damage that the proposed actions will have on the town's water supply.

Based on a story by Dave Eggers.
