In this version, Walt, a recluse, is actually guilty of killing Sam’s wife in a car accident. Following this, Sam, a former soldier, his whole life goes off the rails… We first meet Sam after he’s done time for accidentally killing an aggressive drunk in a bar fight. So… both cases of involuntary manslaughter.? Anyways – the structure is the same, Sam is out to potentially kill Walt. He then falls for his protective, loyal sister. A hit and run is the inciting incident here… In this version, Walt is a far empathetic character – like Sam his whole like devastated and then ruled by a single defining incident. In his case, he can hardly go outside. (Again, in this version, both incidents seem to be out of their hands. However – both men carry around a HUGE amount of doubt over what they did.) I’m keeping doubt as a theme. The death of Sam’s wife was a ripple effect that affected not only those two but the whole town around them. Similarly, the hit-and-run is an echo of that event – and creates a similar ripple effect. However, it’s one that escalates and brings out the worst in everyone… ? 0 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp You must login to can add an answer.
