Towards the end of the movie, after Karen has shot Robert Doob and the police are there, her husband enters the house and sees Robert Doob, dead on the floor being zipped in a black body bag with a white sheet over him. A few seconds later, you see Karen and her husband sitting on the couch, consoling each other and in the background a body is being wheeled out on a stretcher with only a white sheet draped over it.

This film is about a mother who goes to seek justice for the brutal murder of her teenage daughter.
"Eye for an Eye" is an intense drama that tells a family's grief in losing a teenage girl in the family. They all react in different ways; the father seems casual and detached on the surface, but actually has intense anger inside. The younger daughter blames herself, while the mother becomes obsessed with getting justice. The plot is good, it is engaging and well told. However, I think the title gives the whole film away, so things will happen in a certain way in order for the film to be called "Eye for an Eye".
