Ending
From 1982 to 1985, Steve was a Big Brother to Stevie, and troubled kid in rural Illinois. 10 years later, it's 1995 and he returns to see what happened to Stevie. He's got two homemade tattoos, his half-sister got married, he hits his special needs girlfriend Tonya occasionally, talks about his past marriage at 19 to a 34-year-old, and other things also unpleasant. Steve doesn't visit again for two years (now 1997), and calls and talks to grandma; he learns Stevie was in jail for molesting his 8-year-old cousin (even his half-sister Brenda tells that he did things to her as a kid). He gets bailed out; his confession was not given under a Miranda advisement, but he's adamant at not taking a deal because of the stigma of being a sex offender on his record, and undergoing counseling didn't appeal to him either. As the case works through the courts, the appellate court rules the confession is back into the case, and the state is moving forward on a trial, though Stevie is insistent if he's going down for this crime, he's not going to go alone or go quietly. Brenda gets pregnant (he had a rare disease complicating it), her husband's family didn't want Stevie or Steve anywhere near the birth. Stevie is convicted, and at a separate sentencing, was given 10 years in prison (they learn after the judge was going to sentence him to 6 years, had Stevie shown remorse for his actions; he chose not to make a statement when the judge asked him if he wanted to speak). Steve talks about the letters he's getting from Stevie, and how he's discovered Shakespeare. Steve reflects on how he wanted Stevie to be saved with his help, but Steve has now realized what he can do it be there for Stevie; we end with an old photos as Steve drives with a complete works of Shakespeare book in his car.
