About Ain't Them Bodies Saints
In a cabin in 1970s Texas hill country, Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara) and her boyfriend Bob Muldoon (Casey Afleck) are hiding out after Bob committed a robbery. Surrounded by the police, Ruth fires a shot, injuring state trooper Patrick Wheeler (Ben Foster). When they are captured, Bob takes the fall for Ruth and is sentenced to 25 years in prison, leaving her to give birth to their child and raise it alone. She promises to wait for him, possibly out of unconditional love or perhaps guilt, but her semi-widowed existence is complicated when Patrick develops feelings for her and shows concern for her welfare. Meanwhile, Bob succeeds in escaping from prison after several attempts. He is drawn back to Ruth and his daughter but he is also a wanted man.
