It starts simply. A few guys are driving on a winter day, when a fox darts out in front of them. They get out of the truck and go after the fox with their dog. The snow is quite deep, it’s cold, and they’re going to get that fox.
They come upon a densely wooded area. The dog has gone up ahead, and there are crows in the branches. One guy picks some snow up off the ground and forms a perfectly rounded ball.
He turns to toss it across a field, and it hits a solid object. The solid object is a downed airplane.
All the snow on top of the plane falls to the ground. The guys step forward to take a closer look, and one of them opens a side door.
It’s dark inside. As the plane shifts because of the extra weight, the pilot’s head falls back revealing the skeleton of a man that’s been dead for awhile. Crows fly in and peck at the hideous corpse.
There’s a large black duffel bag inside the plane full of money. How did it get here? What should they do with it? Maybe they can come up with a plan to keep it.
My complete review for A SIMPLE PLAN will be posted in the Essentials forum on Saturday June 24th.
