Filled with dark humor, whisky and the wanton destruction of property, Sam Shephard's True West is a gritty character study that explores an encounter between two estranged brothers. Austin is a successful Hollywood screenwriter whose brother Lee is a violent and menacing drifter and small-time thief. Their separate lives come crashing together after a chance meeting at their mother's house. Lee forces himself onto one of Austin's writing projects and the two very different brothers gradually start to take on each other's roles. In what some consider Shepard's signature piece and masterwork, the two brothers battle for survival and their own salvation, but they might destroy each other (and their mom's house) before they find it.
