This timely film examines the use of 'fracking' as a means to extract gas, and the impact that this technology is having on the rural towns in America. Since South Africa may soon allow fracking, the film is relevant to us too. We follow a rising star whose job it is to convince the folk in the target town to sell up and allow the corporation to move in and start drilling. However this town throws up some unusual challenges, ranging from the wise old man to the pretty young teacher, to the firebrand environmentalist who arrives to stop the process.

Steve Butler is sent to a small American town to sign, seal and 'deliver' it to his big corporation in order to 'rape' the land for its gas potential. Steve crosses his 'Rubicon' when he realises the corporation only has money and profit on its mind and not the quaint American way of life that exists in the small town.
