Plot summary

What is Arkansas movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Arkansas" movie plot summary.

Drug dealer Kyle Ribb (Liam Hemsworth) is "promoted" to move product wholesale in Arkansas, part of a loose criminal organization run by a man named Frog (Vince Vaughn). Kyle and his new partner, Swin Horn (Clark Duke), meet Bright (John Malkovich), a park ranger working for Frog. He explains that Kyle and Swin are to work under him, living on the park grounds with cover identities as park employees while they traffic drugs across the southern U.S.
Swin begins dating Johnna (Eden Brolin), a nurse who brings him to a curio shop run by an eccentric owner. Kyle and Swin receive orders from a woman called "Her" to complete a deal in Castor, Louisiana, where they deliver product to a talkative Greek man. His grandson, Nick (Chandler Duke), follows them back to Arkansas. He assaults Bright in his home, and then tortures him for his stash of money, but both are killed in a struggle for Nick's gun. Believing they will be blamed if Frog's organization discovers what happened, Kyle and Swin bury the bodies. Kyle returns to Castor and kills the old Greek man.
In 1985, Frog - revealed to be the curio shop owner - is a West Memphis pawnbroker. He is given a supply of drugs to move, but is kidnapped by a man hired by his buyer. Frog kills the man and escapes to Pine Bluff to work for another drug dealer named Almond (Michael Kenneth Williams). After an undetermined amount of time passes, Frog becomes dissatisfied with his share, and he calls the police on Almond in a set-up. The two amicably split after Almond is sent to prison, and Frog takes over his middleman on the condition that he kills Almond's brother-in-law, whom he hates and sends his sister to a nursing home. The middleman later sells his wholesaler to Frog.
