This does NOT contain spoilers! I'm writing this because the plot information has a big mistake.

Sam's boss does NOT ask him to murder him.

The boss plans to commit suicide (so that his family has money from his insurance), and he wants Sam to help make his death look like murder. Sam tries to convince his boss not to kill himself, and thinks he has succeeded.

But Sam gets a call from his boss later that night, telling him he's going to do it. Sam quickly goes to the boss's home to try to stop him, but it's too late. He finds the boss dead. So Sam decides to do what the boss had asked him to do - make it look like murder. He follows the exact instructions the boss had given him.

These are to get the weapon (a gun) and go outside and shoot two bullets into the window. He is then to throw the gun into the ocean.
