Helen Wheeler is a gun totin and whiskey drinking Granny, living in the small town of Crockett, Oklahoma. When Helen isnt locked up in the local clink, shes on her front porch shootin up critters and the local kids. Not even the local sheriff, who has already taken away all of her ammo and her drivers license, can manage to uphold the law when it comes to Helen, her sidekick Zona, and their daily Thelma and Louise antics. Helens son Nelson thinks its time for Mama to move out of Crockett and closer to him. But, her dearly departed husband practically built that town and was the mayor for over 20 years, and she isnt going anywhere. Loss, loneliness and the threat to independence that accompany aging are issues that Helen and the other characters wrangle with zany comedy and touching realism. Helen on Wheels is a delightful heartwarming new comedy proving that feisty old ladies have the right to cause hell, play bingo and to bear arms!
