In the 1920s, wildcat oil strikes, overnight wealth and Prohibition gave rise to lawless new towns. The most notorious of these was the unruly city of Borger, Texas.
Based on memoirs and trial transcripts, Boomtown follows land promoter Ace Borger, who capitalized on oil strikes in the Texas Panhandle. With the notorious Two-Gun Dick Herwig installed as sheriff, is soon overrun with wild dancehalls, bootleg liquor joints, and gambling halls.
