A darkly humorous saga about the quintessential working class American family. On the eve of his final fight, all-star wrestling legend Art "Crazy Train" Sligo, his two slacker sons, his colorful sister-in-law and his biggest fan gather for a very unusual last supper. Of course, a few unexpected guests arrive, sparks fly, and things just can't seem to stop going wrong in the Sligo home...

Running time: 85 minutes with no intermission
"In American Sligo, his latest attack on the moral values and social conventions that define the American way of life.... Rapp hits his stride in the razor-cut pieces of dialogue..."— Variety
