Born in the unheard-of Springberry, Alabama, born Dewford Randolph Cox has an emotional breakdown when his brother Nate (Jonah Hill) gets sliced in half with a machete in an accident Dewey was involved in. Dewey (John C. Reilly) leaves Springberry aged 14, with Edith (Kristen Wiig) his to-be-wife, aged 12, to pursue a career in music. After marrying, Edith keeps telling him to face facts; that he will never amount to anything musically. Yet through a chain of chance events he ends up recording ‘Walk Hard’ which becomes a hit in 35 minutes…
