Summary
When Marty, the owner of a Texas backwoods bar, hires a man to kill his cheating wife and her boyfriend, he opens a door into the criminal world that he'll never be able to shut. The sleazy hit man decides instead to shoot Marty, thereby collecting his unearned fee and eliminating the only person who could implicate him-- or so he thinks. Tweaked, and some original music restored, by the Coens in 2001
