The Hero

Lee Hayden is an aging Western icon with a golden voice, but his best performances are decades behind him.

He soon strikes up an exciting, contentious relationship with stand-up comic Charlotte, and he attempts to reconnect with his estranged daughter, Lucy, all while searching for one final role to cement his legacy.
