Things are tough all over for Jim Cunningham. A coal truck driver who recently lost his job and his marriage, Jim isn't exactly adapting well to life as a stay at home single parent. With two kids, a twenty-something daughter which can best be described as lazy, and a son with an ever-evolving identity crisis, Jim is clearly in over his head. In addition to family's issues, Jim's bills are piling up and his chances at employment are getting fewer by the day. Luckily, as Jim is about to hit his breaking point, he is met by a peculiar visitor from the Grendel Gas Corporation with an interesting offer; all of his money problems can go away on one, simple stipulation... only they can decide where on his property to install the gas fracturing well. With only a minimal amount of time to make a decision, Jim is forced to ask the hard question, how far will he go to provide for his family?
