Experiencing Interruptions?



Hoax Busters, an internet 'fake video' team take a weekend retreat after busting another online lie to do some team building. They travel to Whisky Flats Oregon and meet with Craig Eubanks, a bossy know-it-al outdoor guide who promises them his company, Rocks and Roots, will build their team confidence.
At the same time, an invasive drilling company with the land rights handed over by the federal government are moving onto the land of the family that has lived on the property, illegally for 30 years. When the drillers attack the family and the HoaxBusters get caught in the middle, things quickly go awry.
