According to Lesser America, Wyoming centers on the Tuttle family's rocky and revealing Thanksgiving evening. "When their estranged and silent brother is spotted at a hometown diner 20 years after a confounding childhood crime, buried memories and unspoken bounties hatch one boozy, plotting Thanksgiving. In the depths of Wyoming's wilderness, the family herd must stick together or teeter towards the way of the buffalo."
The cast features Daniel Abeles, Carter Hudson, Layla Khoshnoudi, Roger Lirtsman, Nate Miller, Laura Ramadei and Sarah Sokolovic.
