In this part of Southern USA, inseparable from its Music, Wes Milligan, Country 'n Western undiscovered star is living like a Bum. Unlucky in love he's made disappointment a life-choice, and his talent just re-enforces his reputation as a Bum. "This World Won't Break" proceeds slowly, with interspersed numbers, sometimes with light accompaniment, sung mainly by Wes, with his 'capo on G-fret' country guitar.
Now 40 years old, Wes's life dilemma is ironically simple. Like Shakespearian, Prince Hamlet's epic monologue, "Nobler" for him to suffer life's slings and arrows in permanent "meloconia" as a drunk than to face up to Life, and "break" from that past to which he's become so attached. Wes is at his own personal Crossroads. And this movie is his personal soliloquy. Many will complain that it's too long, though true C&W/Blues fans will probably argue the reverse. But as a GENUINE piece of born-in-America culture, it's worthy enough just for being that.
