Description

Leith, North Dakota is a registered ghost town of 24 people. The town has an apocalyptic beauty set against a prairie backdrop of wide-open sky and fields of wheat. In 2012, an outsider moved in and started buying up property with dubious motivations.

Welcome to Leith offers a glimpse into a town struggling for sovereignty against one man's extremist vision. That it takes place in the shadow of the biggest oil boom in North Dakota's history makes the film a complex document exploring unforeseen causes and effects.
