Oil Calling follows five new immigrants from Nigeria, Eritrea, Northern Ireland,
China, and Kyrgyzstan who have been chosen to participate in a highly
competitive training program offered by the resettlement agency, the Calgary
Catholic Immigration Society. For the last ten years the CCIS has been receiving
up to four hundred applicants each year but can only select sixteen people to
participate in the program. The film will show what happens to them on the
course, why they want to work in the oil and gas industry and whether they are
successful at getting jobs in the oil patch.
