Recap

The scene opens in a prison yard. A man is getting released and he doesn’t look too happy. He walks into a bar and the bartender eyes him. They eventually have sex in the back room. He steals a car and drives off. He walks into a hair salon later and Job, one of the hair dressers, follows him to the back room. The man asks where “she” is and after some persuasion, he gets her location. The man goes outside and is followed by a SUV. He crashes his car and runs for it. One of the men, Olek, tries to kill him. A bus flips over in the street and the man is forced to run back Olek, trying to kill him. He makes a run for it and steals a motorcycle. He gets away and smiles. He drives into Amish Country to the town of Banshee...
