In the town of Dixmoor, Illinois, there is a family rivalry going on between Wendy Casey and her son Randall Casey. They are both running for Mayor. The candidates are running against two additional opponents, Dorothy Armstrong and Keevan Grimmett, who has been called a favorite to win. The historical mother-son mayoral run in Dixmoor is a messy one; primarily because the two Casey’s still live together. Randall Casey, who is 27 years old and a local cable technician, pays his mother monthly rent.
