D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A teenage boy, Lee Malvo (TEQUAN RICHMOND), on the island of Antigua watches his mother pack for a trip, abandoning him for the last time. Hungry and left to fend for himself, the quiet, lonely teenager spots a man, John Allen Muhammad (ISAIAH WASHINGTON), happily playing with his three small children. John takes Lee in, after saving him from drowning himself, and ends up bringing him home with him to Tacoma, Washington.

They stay, briefly, with John's girlfriend, Angela (CASSANDRA FREEMAN), now introducing Lee as his "son." John "borrows" Angela's moped, and takes Lee on a tour of the town, showing him his old neighborhood, where he once lived with his wife and family, torn apart by a bitter divorce -- which resulted in a restraining order against John to keep away from her and the children.

After revealing a biting rage against his wife, neighbors and the rest of his universe, John unsuccessfully attempts to locate his family. Not long after, Angela throws the two out. On the streets, John declares to Lee, "I gave you all this!" -- telling the boy he must prove his love for him as a father. They end up at the home of an old army buddy, Ray (TIM BLAKE NELSON), and his girlfriend, Jamie (JOEY LAUREN ADAMS) -- whom John has qualms about having sex with before his friend arrives home.

Ray takes John and Lee for some target practice, where Lee learns to shoot a rifle and other firearms. Ray declares the boy "a natural."

While grocery shopping, Lee observes John's rage continuing to brew, as he ponders a plan of revenge -- finding a half dozen random targets to quietly pick off each day for a month. Meanwhile, Lee is caught shoplifting by the store's manager, though the manipulative John easily disarms the man's anger, promising to keep an eye on the boy.

Not long after, John takes Lee out to the woods, where they often run and train, this time, quietly -- and, oddly, lovingly -- tying him to a tree to spend the night alone in the dark, wet forest. Upon his return the next morning, John tells him, "I can lead you." Wishing to prove himself to his "father," Lee borrows one of Ray's handguns and kills the daughter of one of John's neighbors who had testified against him during the divorce. Lee doesn't want to pursue any more killings, but John continues to break him down, later sending him to kill/rob a local bartender.

John buys a run-down blue Chevy Caprice, which he begins to modify -- creating a secret shooting bay in the trunk for Lee to hide in and shoot from as they pursue their victims. In the meantime, Lee studies a military sniper's manual, which he excitedly absorbs like a bible. After pretending to be a school principal, John obtains the whereabouts of his ex-wife and children, and the two leave for Maryland to find them. Upon arrival, though, the now-hardened Lee, who has absorbed John's plan of revenge, points out to his mentor that the plan is now far bigger than one of finding his family. . .

They begin a weeks-long assault on anyone and everyone -- men, women, children, young and old alike, terrorizing the National Capital region with unexplained sniper killings of innocents. They are eventually caught.

While in jail awaiting his trial, a public defender attempts to ascertain from Lee his and John's motive and relationship. "You're not going to figure it out. Even if I tell you," he says.
