On learning of his mother's death, world famous country and western star Strings McCrane (Olyphant) begins questioning the meaning of his life and what it all adds up to.

Wilson appeared in the Atlantic productions of Dying for It, Our New Girl, Offices and The Voysey Inheritance and on Broadway in Bronx Bombers, The Big Knife, Festen, Henry IV and The Best Man.
