Tony Hastings is a peaceful man who runs afoul of three local troublemakers – Ray Marcus, Lou and Turk – during a road trip through West Texas. Forced off the road, Tony is powerless to stop Ray and Turk from kidnapping his wife Laura and their daughter, India and leaving him with Lou, who forces him to drive Ray’s car to the end of a road where he is abandoned. Tony manages to evade Ray and Turk when they return looking for him and makes his way to a nearby farmhouse to ask for help.
Detective Bobby Andes is assigned to the case and discovers Laura and India’s bodies in an abandoned shack where they were raped and murdered. Tony is wracked with guilt. Disillusioned, Tony is contacted by Andes a year after his family was murdered and is asked to identify Lou, who is charged as an accomplice in the murders of Laura and India.
Turk has been fatally shot in a botched robbery, leaving Ray as the final culprit to be brought to justice. Andes arrests Ray, but is ultimately forced to release him as they only have circumstantial evidence of his involvement. On the verge of retirement and having been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, Andes decides to take matters into his own hands and with Tony’s help abducts Ray and Lou to the shack where Laura and India were killed. Andes shoots Lou when he attempts to escape, while Ray manages to escape.
Tony tracks Ray down on his own and the two have a violent confrontation, in which Ray admits to raping and murdering Tony’s wife and daughter, calling him weak. Tony fatally shoots him, but is blinded when Ray hits him on the head with an iron bar. In the process he stumbles outside, only to fall on his gun and accidentally shoot himself.
The Real World (cont.)
Shocked by the dark content and raw emotion of the novel, Susan reminisces about meeting Edward in college and their blossoming relationship, which Susan’s domineering mother Anne Sutton objected to, claiming that Edward was not worthy of Susan’s affections and that due to his romantic worldviews he lacked the drive to actually achieve his goals; Susan ignored her mother’s objections, ultimately marrying Edward.
After finding further evidence of Hutton’s extramarital affair, Susan resumes reading the manuscript. Susan begins to recall her troubled marriage to Edward, which was strained by her frustration with his fledgling career and her dismissive attitude towards his literary aspirations, and culminated with Susan cheating on him with Hutton and ultimately divorcing Edward to marry him. Edward attempted to repair their relationship, but ultimately cut ties with Susan upon learning that she was pregnant with his child and secretly had an abortion to ensure the divorce proceedings ran as expected.
Susan realizes that the novel is an allegory for the loss Edward endured during their separation and that he dedicated the novel to her as a form of revenge, having sent the manuscript to prove to her that he was capable of writing a successful novel. Susan reevaluates her current behavior and contacts Edward, arranging a meeting with him in hopes of mending their relationship, only for her to realize that he will not show up to meet with her again.
