When Bob visits Skerritt and they embrace, Bob is clearly wearing a wedding ring which is not present in any other scene including in the continuation of this meeting. Given Bob Muldoon and Ruth Guthrie's differing names it could be presumed they are not married. See more »
Affleck plays Bob, a petty criminal who gets sent to prison and later escapes jail to go look for his woman and child while being chased by the law and a couple of thugs for no reason explained. The film is one gigantic drag without purpose or meaning or even a hint at the most basic of plots.
