Hometown U.S.A.

When Francy and Jamie spend their life savings on a house in a small country town, they are shocked to discover that flammable gas courses through the water pipes. They are in fracking country, and in for some very rough lessons on what that means. As they struggle to get the gas company to remediate the nearby fracking wells, they join with their neighbors in protest and a lawsuit. But the fracking company has hired a security firm, Insurgent Control, whose guards cut their teeth as mercenaries in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hometown U.S.A. is the story of a community struggle, not just against a power­ful industry, but against its hired guns, who have literally brought America's longest war home.
