As the film progresses, Dallas forces Ava to grant him a divorce. His behavior becomes increasingly hostile, even attacking Benji (Joseph Lee Anderson), one of Ava’s friends who has feelings for her. Dallas goes so far as to call Ava out of character, further humiliating her and adding to the emotional abuse she endures.

Later, in a moment of vulnerability and seeking comfort, Ava asks Benji to make love with her. However, Benji, understanding the emotional complexity of the situation and his original feelings for Ava, gently declines. He expresses his desire to be more than just a passing distraction for her, saying that he wants to be on her mind for the right reasons.

Ava finally understands her worth and decides to take a stand for herself. Determined to break free from the toxic marriage, she signs the divorce papers.

As she does this, she consciously ignores Dallas’ presence, refusing to engage with him or acknowledge his attempts to belittle her. This act of defiance infuriates Dallas, who is not used to Ava asserting her own will.

Later, Rona throws a divorce party to celebrate Ava’s newfound freedom. During the party, Benji and Ava grow closer. Watching from the outside, Dallas becomes angry and jealous when he sees Ava move on and find happiness without him. Rona’s husband, who is also Dallas’ friend, asks him to leave.

After the party, Benji drops Ava off at her house. The intimate and supportive gesture brings them even closer and they make love.

The next morning, Dallas shows up and declares his intention to give their marriage a second chance just because he can’t bear to see Ava happy without him.

However, Ava stands firm and declines his offer. She declares that she would never ask a man like Dallas to stay in a marriage that brought her so much pain and humiliation.

However, Dallas goes to Ava’s room, finds Benji there, and explodes in anger. He begins to physically attack Benji, perhaps driven by his feelings of betrayal or possessiveness.

Benji and Ava manage to push him out of the house.

Ava decides to get revenge and calls Dallas, telling him that he has always been mean by praising Benji for his amazing love and sex. She says she is in the house and going to sleep with Benji.

However, Ava plans to lure Dallas to her house. When he arrives, she confronts him about his behavior, recording the entire confrontation. As Dallas becomes physically violent, Ava defends herself by fatally shooting him.

At the hospital, Ava’s father begins to recover, and they find happiness together. When Dallas’ family confronts her, she firmly states that it’s over.

In the end, Ava finally gets her happy ending with Benji.
