"O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU"
O Brother, Where Art Thou? The film is set in rural Mississippi during the Great Depression. Its story is a modern satire loosely based on Homer 's epic Greek poem The Odyssey that incorporates mythology from the American South. Much of the music used in the film is period folk music ,  including that of Virginia bluegrass singer Ralph Stanley. In Mississippi during the Great Depression , three convicts, Ulysses Everett McGill, Delmar O'Donnell and Pete, escape from a chain gang and set out to retrieve a treasure Everett claims to have buried from an armored truck robbery, before its locale is flooded to make a lake and provide electricity for the state. The three get a lift from a blind man driving a handcar on a railway. He tells them, among other prophecies, that they will find a fortune but not the one they seek.
