When legendary Goth rocker Cheyenne (two-time Academy Award® winner Sean Penn), long-retired in Dublin with his firefighter wife, Jane (Academy Award® winner Frances McDormand), learns his estranged father is dying, the childlike recluse travels to New York to seek reconciliation -- only to arrive too late. Upon discovering his father's unfulfilled quest for revenge against an ex-Nazi war criminal taking refuge in America, Cheyenne embarks upon his own journey of reawakening in this engaging and unpredictable road adventure from internationally acclaimed director Paolo Sorrentino.
