The oil boom in North Dakota set off a crisis in rural communities forced to confront the meaning of progress as they fight for a disappearing way of life. Challenging the notion of “progress” this film questions the long term human consequences of short term approaches to land use decisions that ultimately affect all Americans, rural and urban alike. “…shows that patient, persistent and respectful engagement by community residents can be helpful, if not always completely successful, in improving public decisions.” Thomas Johnson, Professor Emeritus, Agricultural and Applied Economics, University of Missouri.
