In the deep south during the 1930s, three escaped convicts search for hidden treasure while a relentless lawman pursues them.
Joel Coen revealed that the film was inspired by The Wizard of Oz (1939). "It started as a 'three saps on the run' kind of movie, and then at a certain point we looked at each other and said, 'You know, they're trying to get home-let's just say this is The Odyssey. We were thinking of it more as The Wizard of Oz. We wanted the tag on the movie to be: 'There's No Place Like Home.'"
Ulysses Everett McGill:
Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?
After the flood, Everett, Delmar, and Pete find themselves drifting on the coffin. You can tell that they are either are being pulled/pushed up stream or they are not moving at all; the debris and broken trees are floating downstream pass them as they converse.
