A dead Union soldier reflects on life and the universe prior to his execution.
Steven Wright, that lethargic comedian we all know and love, plays a star-gazing soldier-for-hire during the American Civil War. His inspired accordian performance on the battlefield is interrupted by his irate employer, the rich man who hired Wright to fight in his place. Wright murders only for love of music; his reflections on life and love are eerily profound; his execution does nothing to quiet his contemplation. See this film short! Ironic, witty, endearing. Documentary-style, one gets the sense that the only thing separating us from the real Steven Wright is a period costume.
