Texas, early 20th century. A story about family, greed and religion. Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis) moves to a miserable city with the purpose of making a fortune, but, as he gets richer, his principles and values disappear and he ends up dominated by ambition. After finding a rich oil field in 1902, he becomes a wealthy tycoon. When, years later, he tries to seize a new site, he has to face the preacher Eli Sunday (Paul Dano).
