Did you ever watch the TV series Breaking Bad? This guy was a stand-up husband, teacher, and dedicated father. Then one day he found out he had cancer and didn't have much time to live. In his job, he knew it wouldn't provide for his family so he started to cook crystal meth. He joined up with this other guy and bought a motorhome. He just wanted to do this long enough to get the money he needed to leave his family. It was a fun story and it showed all the problems he had in his adventure. In the end, he did lose it all. He lost his family, his cancer came back, and his wife and kids no longer wanted to talk to him. He ended up hiding from the law in some cabin in the mountains and would get his cancer treatments from his friend.
This type of film was hard for me to think the bad guy should get it in the end. I understand he was wrong for doing what he did, but what other choice did he have. He was dying from cancer and only wanted to make sure his family was taken care of. This type of story I wouldn't want to see this guy get it in the end. I sort of like the way it ended and he was dying but killed in the end. I guess there are certain stories where the bad guy is actually a good guy who is left with limited choices and chooses the wrong way in the end.
