Five oil patch workers compete against each other to win a karaoke contest in one of the most controversial places on the planet - Northern Alberta's infamous Oil Sands. The multinational oil corporations call their product responsible, terror-free oil. Scientists believe the world is choking to death on the fumes we generate burning this product.

These five characters know they're at the center of a global controversy and yet they continue to work there under extremely arduous physical conditions for long hours for extended periods without a single day off. Why? Obviously for the high wages. But what could motivate a person in this situation to sing karaoke, let alone take it seriously?

Oil Sands Karaoke. A karaoke contest in the Oil Sands. Really.
