Things People Do


In "Things People Do", Bill Scanlin loses his job and, unable to tell his wife Susan for fear of losing his family, embarks on a life of crime. He befriends a detective, Frank, who has chosen to uphold the law for a living but believes very little in its value. Ruby, the first stranger to show him kindness, inspires Bill to commit a crime in her honor, and he starts to enjoy his new-found power. As Bill stays ahead of the law, he discovers that sometimes the only thing worse than getting caught is getting away with it.
