SCOTLAND, PA is a black comedy retelling of Shakespeare's Macbeth, set against the backdrop of a fast food restaurant in early 70's, rural Pennsylvania. This classic tale of guilt and betrayal centers on the McBeths, Joe "Mac" (James Le Gros) and Pat (Maura Tierney) who are stuck in their dead end jobs at Duncan's Restaurant. Pat is getting restless and hatches a plan as 'Mac' starts to see things - three hippies, (Andy Dick, Amy Smart and Timothy 'Speed' Levitch) to be exact.
Their boss, Norm Duncan (James Rebhorn), is a visionary who has dreams of turning his restaurant into a Fast Food empire. His idea will revolutionize the Fast Food industry and nobody knows about it - not the happy customers in his small town, his employees, or his two dysfunctional teenage sons, Malcolm (Tom Guiry) and Donald (Geoff Dunsworth). When Norm meets with a bizarre death, Lieutenant Ernie McDuff (Christopher Walken) is called in to investigate.
Things seem to work out well for 'Mac' and Pat after Malcolm and Donald sell the restaurant to their father's favorite employees. The McBeths transform Duncan's Restaurant into the wildly successful, state-of-the-art, fast food mecca, McBeth's Restaurant. That is, until 'Mac's' friend and co-worker Anthony 'Banko' Banconi (Kevin Corrigan), starts becoming suspicious as people begin to disappear.
The bodies continue to drop as 'Mac's' visits from the three hippies become more frequent and Pat, with a few obsessions of her own, starts to break down. With McDuff hot on the trail, the McBeth's dream of fame, fortune and french fries crumbles before their eyes.
