Its 1982. Magritte Holes, the ailing, notoriously outrageous, matriarch of one of Houstons most prominent oil families, has been hiding out in her bedroom for months, guzzling whiskey, planning the annual Holes Barbecue, and developing an outlandish strategy to save Texas, and her familys fortune, from imminent collapse. Unfortunately, neither her high-profile guests, nor her colorful, dysfunctional family, have any idea what she has in store for them! OIL is the story of a family, and a country, so desperate to hold on to what they have, that they are willing to sacrifice what matters most: each other.
