About two friends
Lennie and Curley's wife talk in the barn. She discovers that he likes to touch soft things and offers to let him touch her hair. He quickly accepts. Shocked by his strength, she panics, and so does Lennie. They struggle and Lennie breaks her neck, killing her.
Lennie remembers where George told him to go should either of them get into trouble. He arrives at their spot and is soon joined by George. Meanwhile, Curley has gathered a mob to lynch him.
Out of love, George kills Lennie so that he doesn't have to suffer a painful death at the hands of the lynch mob.
