Plot summary

What is The Death of Dick Long movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Death of Dick Long" movie plot summary.

Late at night, friends Dick Long (Daniel Scheinert), Zeke Olsen (Michael Abbott Jr.), and Earl Wyeth (Andre Hyland) hang out together and set off fireworks. The night turns deadly serious when Dick ends up sustaining severe injuries and his friends dump him in front of an emergency room. The cause of his wounds is unexplained.
Earl returns to his home and loads up his truck with several of his possessions, telling his friend and casual love interest Lake that he has to leave town for a family emergency. Rather than skip town immediately, he briefly attends a shift at his warehouse job.
Zeke takes a shower and quietly sneaks into bed, fooling his wife Lydia (Virginia Newcomb) into thinking he had been asleep. She asks him to drive their daughter Cynthia to school. He agrees and when Lydia asks him for some cash, he inadvertently pulls Dick's wallet out of his pocket: he and Zeke took it off of him as he lay unconscious. He takes out the driver's license and puts it on the counter and quickly gets Cynthia down to the garage. Before they leave, he realizes that his back seat is covered in blood and he covers it with a sheet.
As the two men begin their day, Dr. Richter (Roy Wood Jr.) - the physician who discovered Dick lying outside the hospital where he works - calls the local police department. The man has died overnight from severe rectal hemorrhaging and he suspects that there was a sex crime involved.
Zeke stops off at a gas station and inside the store, Cynthia interacts with Officer Dudley (Sarah Baker). As the child tells her that her father found a wallet that he should return, Zeke notices that the blood in the back seat has soaked through to Cynthia's dress. He runs inside to keep the police officer from seeing and gives her the wallet. The two quickly leave and Zeke calls Earl to tell them that they have to meet immediately.
