Glenn Reeves, a Texas oilman, struggles up the mountain of success until Lewis Thaler, an art dealer from New York, comes to his rescue. Over a period of twenty years, they surmount every obstacle with the help of the many women in their lives.
In spite of his intellectual superiority, Lewis becomes the student of Glenn who explains while eating at a truck stop, "This is comfort food and country music is comfort music."
David Rojay's A Red State Hero delves into the world of oil, money, sex and Republicans. Can Reeves' and Thaler's relationship become an "example" of tolerance in a nation divided?
