In a time very much like our own

In the face of dwindling approval ratings and growing criticism, President George W. Bush is impeached and thrown out of office near the end of his second term. He returns home to Texas, bewildered and humiliated, his political career in ruins.

Meanwhile a deeply respected but poorly reviewed Bob Dylan finds his Never Ending Tour odyssey grow tired and stale as fans and critics alike view him more a traveling museum than dynamic performance artist. Bob retires from music altogether, disillusioned and unsure of his place in the music industry.

As the sun fades on these two men, each of them struggles to find their place in the increasingly fickle American cultural landscape. Both of their worlds come together in strange and unpredictable ways, demonstrating how seemingly opposite ends of lifes spectrum may not be far apart from each other after all.
