Crude


A short time after two elderly North Dakota farmers are found asphyxiated in their Buick, a New York developer proposes their isolated farm for an oil refinery. The story of the dead body merges with the refinery story causing a personal and financial explosion—New York money versus Dakota dirt; national big-business politics versus Dakota back-fence politics; oil versus agriculture; brash guys with private jets. But Crude is only peripherally concerned with oil. The story is really about ambition, passion, rejection and revenge. In other words, illicit oily sex and illicit oily money.
