A rich oil family build a giant platform to drill for oil off Long Island. Environmentalists demonstrate against the risks of blowouts, spills, and fires. All this is a background for a complicated human drama, a failed marriage, a love affair, a dominant father and his children and eventually, violence and destruction. A look into the world of big oil and its battle with environmentalists.
