WATCH: Must-See 'Overnighters' Trailer Examines American Dream Gone Wrong

The trailer for Jesse Moss’ timely, wrenching documentary “The Overnighters," winner of the 2014 Sundance Special Jury Prize, has debuted.

This tragic study of unemployment in America centers on a North Dakota town where the discovery of an untapped oil field attracts jobseekers. But dreams of prospect-style wealth quickly turn to disillusion as limited jobs
are filled almost overnight, and a local pastor’s charity brings chaos to a now-divided community, dragging everyone’s demons out into the light.

"The Overnighters” opens in NY October 10, LA October 31.
