"[Payne has] made an 'American Gothic' for 21st-century, post-recession America." –Washington Post
After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he's struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, NEBRASKA tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.
