Sweet Virginia

The film opens with Tom joining Lou and Mitchell at Lou's bar for their weekly poker games when a man (Christopher Abbott) enters and asks to be served. Upon being told the bar is closed the man refuses to leave. When Mitchell approaches, the man threatens Mitchell calling him by name. The man then gets up and angrily leaves only to return and violently shoot Lou, Mitchell, and Tom. The next morning Sam (Jon Bernthal) wakes up after dreaming about his former days as a bull rider. He starts his morning at the motel by reading about the shootings in the paper and then responding to a disturbance in room 128. Sam politely and shyly asks the tenant to quiet down, only to have the door shut in his face. Later that day, Tom's wife, Bernadette (Rosemarie DeWitt), goes on the porch during a gathering for her deceased husband and asks Sam if she can come by to no avail. Sam has trouble lifting his right arm and walks with a limp due to injuries suffered from bull riding. Bernadette, ignoring Sam's earlier wish, wakes Sam in the middle of the night for sex to which he obliges. They discuss whether Tom is in heaven or hell and Sam seems regretful of his relationship with Bernadette. Upon leaving the next morning, Bernadette picks up the picture Sam laid down. The photo is of a woman and a young girl.
