Disenchanted with the daily drudge of crushing rocks on a prison farm, Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney) busts loose. Except he’s still shackled to his chain gang—bad-tempered Pete (John Turturro), and sweet, dimwitted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson). With nothing to lose and buried loot to regain, the three embark on the adventure that includes a blind prophet, sexy sirens, and a one-eyed Bible salesman (John Goodman).
