Rated 98% on Rotten Tomatoes
 
New York Times Critics Pick
 
A modern-day Grapes of Wrath, award-winning documentary THE OVERNIGHTERS is an intimate portrait of job-seekers desperately chasing the broken American Dream to the tiny oil boom town of Williston, North Dakota.  With the town unable to house the overflow of migrants, a local pastor starts the controversial “overnighters” program, allowing down-and-out workers a place to sleep at the church.   His well-meaning project leads to profound consequences that he never imagined.
