After receiving an offer of $100,000 for the natural gas drilling rights to his property, filmmaker Josh Fox travels across the country to investigate the potential hazards. What he discovers is shocking: contaminated groundwater that bubbles and hisses, residents suffering from chronic illnesses, and—perhaps most disturbingly—flammable tap water.
