Marla comes to in a barn upstate to find herself standing over a freshly murdered corpse with the smoking gun in her hand.
Can she trust Spencer, the beaten and bound man cowering in the corner, to jog her memories of the events that brought them all here? What heinous acts could she be capable of? Goodbody is an ultra-violent, profane fantasia of hilarious and shocking proportions.
