The Overnighters


Episode Info

"The Overnighters," about the North Dakota oil boom, details the goings-on at a Williston church whose pastor turned it into a makeshift dorm for folks unable to find housing. The emigres moved to the region in hopes of finding work. Some have, some haven't, but a housing shortage means they have nowhere to live. Not all in the community welcome the arrangement, however. Also: the Immigrant Nation short "The Caretaker"; and StoryCorps shorts "A More Perfect Union" and "The Last Viewing."
