The action takes place at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Minnesota, during the last broadcast of the fictionalized version of GK's (Garrison Keillor) radio show. Onstage, singing cowboys (Woody Harrelson and John C. Reilly) perform, and aging sisters (Meryl Streep and Lily Tomlin) sing of the past. Meanwhile, the theater's security agent, Guy Noir (Kevin Kline), searches backstage for a mysterious blonde (Virginia Madsen). Just like in real life, people talk over and interrupt each other, but the show goes on.
