Ending
At age 12, Karl saw his mom in bed with her gentleman friend (he killed them with a sling blade, which is a scythe-like knife). In a phrase, Karl is a bit slow mentally. He's released from the nut hospital, and returns to his hometown, where he ends up getting a job at a garage fixing motors and such. He befriends Frank, a 12-year-old or so son of Linda, who's dating abusive drunk Doyle. Doyle dislikes Frank and Karl both (he hates kids and retards, he says). Doyle runs Karl off, and despite Frank trying to talk Karl into standing up for himself (arguing Karl is older and bigger than Doyle); Karl passes, tells the boy that even if he's not around, he still cares what happens to Frank, and leaves him with some books and a bookmark that says, "You will be Happy." Karl then gets Linda's (gay) pal Vaughn to promise to look after Linda and Frank, pointing out you don't have to go with women to be a good father. Karl then is in the basement, sharpening a lawnmower blade. Karl talks to Doyle, asks him how to call the cops (Doyle tells him dial 9-1-1), and Karl lets Doyle know he's going to kill him, and two chops later, he drops the knife and tells the 911 dispatcher that he killed Doyle, and gives them directions to the house, and says thanks. Karl sits down and has a bite to eat. We close with Karl back in the mental hospital. Moving film reel
