Fine documentary by Jesse Moss that puts into question a pastor's true Christian values when put into conflict with his own congregation and town's view of his charity. The practising of 'Christian values' when put against the group's own fears, bigotry and status makes those values one of convenience. Mind you the other side is seen as well as those receiving charity show their true human nature as well. Difficult.
A very unsuspecting, compassionate film about the very human struggle of the men and women who travel from all over the country (and the world) to work in the oil fields of Western North Dakota, only to find nowhere to live. The local pastor starts up a highly controversial program at the Church to house the influx of workers, putting stress on the townspeople. Moss patiently takes the audience on a strange journey.
