Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it. When a middle aged Midwest farmer lands a development deal with a large mining company, his life will never be the same; neither will his family's.
Synopsis: Scott Weber lives a simple life with his wife and teenage son in rural Missouri. His income is sparse, but his expenses are few. When an unexpected discovery by his dog Lucky leads to a Mineral Rights deal with a major corporation, Scott's greed and lust for power engulf his persona.

First, Scott swindles his police officer brother (Dennis) out of half of the land rights via a shady deal through an old local lawyer friend. Then through the purchase of a new car and some rebellious activity, Scott's son Cody gains popularity from halls of high school obscurity and catches the attention of his long sought after crush. But when word spreads through the small town of Springfield, Scott's castle begins to crumble from the inside out.
