The story that follows is about Minnesota. It evokes the abstract landscape of our childhood - a bleak, windswept tundra, resembling Siberia except for its Ford dealerships and Hardee's restaurants. It aims to be both homey and exotic, and pretends to be true.

[From Ethan Coen's introduction to the Fargo screenplay.]

[Shopping carts proliferate in wintertime at Saint Paul's Central Station.]
