Stand by me movie storyline:

Young Gordie is a quiet, bookish boy who likes to tell stories. His parents, grieving the recent death of Gordie’s older brother Denny, neglect their youngest son. Gordie’s friends are Chris Chambers whose relatives are criminals and alcoholics; Teddy Duchamp , an eccentric and physically scarred boy; and Vern Tessio, who is overweight and timid.

Vern overhears his older brother, Billy. and Billy’s friend, Charlie Hogan, discussing Ray Brower, a young boy who was reportedly struck and killed by a train. Gordie, Chris, Teddy, and Vern decide to find Ray’s body, hoping to become local heroes. Chris steals his father’s M1911 pistol, and the boys set out, stopping at a nearby junkyard to drink from its water pump. The boys hang out in the junkyard for a while, while Gordie leaves to buy food for the journey. Gordie escapes as well. Pressman, infuriated, threatens to call the boys’ parents and calls Teddy’s father a “loony”; Teddy attempts to attack Pressman, but the boys restrain him and they leave.

The film ends with Gordie finishing his memoir after his son asks him, again, if he is going to take him swimming. After typing the memoir’s last words into his computer, Gordie goes outside of his opulent home, and drives away with his son and his son’s friend in his Series II Land Rover, seemingly having become a successful author.
