Directed by Jesse Moss, "The Overnighters" is a film that scrutinizes a well-meaning, but anger-inducing housing program created by a pastor in Williston, North Dakota. In this exclusive stop motion poster, we get a glimpse at some of the current workers who arrive to the town in search of the infamous American dream. 

"The Overnighters" will open in theaters on October 10.
