Lennie and George have to leave Weed, where they are from because Lennie has a mental disability that always seems to cause trouble, so they always have to move from place to place.
OH NO! Not again! what will I tell George!
Lennie and George start working at the ranch and befriend a few of the workers. However, Curley (the boss' son) dislikes Lennie, causing a fight that resulted in Lennie accidentally crushing Curley's hand. Throughout the story, Curley's wife begins to cause problems with the characters, that affect everyone.
Lennie! Lennie... where are you?
George, Lennie and Candy make plans to buy a farm (with lots of rabbits for Lennie) from an old couple, as soon as they earn enough money.
Lennie is in the barn after he accidentally kills his puppy, when Curley's Wife comes in and starts talking to him. Then, Curley's Wife asks Lennie if he wants to touch her hair (because it is soft and Lennie likes to pet soft things). When she starts to struggle and tells him to let go, Lennie panics and accidentally breaks her neck, leading to her death.
George and the others discover that Lennie killed Curley's wife and rally together (without George) to kill George for what he did. Lennie gets frightened and goes to hide in a bush and wait for George.
shhh george! over here!
George shoots Lennie in the back of the head, without Lennie having any idea; before, Curley finds him and shoots him first! Geroge then covers it up and feels bad for shooting his best friend.
