The keyword in the movie Days of Heaven (1978) is PRIDE.
The protagonists are an unmarried couple struggling to survive.The man has a tendency towards violence, which ends in premature death, and the woman is passive.
Bill is a man with an older and more advanced soul than Kit in Badlands (1973). His emotional field is better developed. He expresses anger towards his boss, compassion to his companion, and tenderness to his sister.
However, his soul is still in a very immature condition. He is unable to predict the consequences of his actions (i.e., the scene with the factory’s boss) or to properly plan his actions and implement his ideas. Prompted by pride and a desire for a better life, Bill seeks a shortcut to becoming rich. However, due to low consciousness, he does not see the consequences of his actions.
Bill accidentally causes harm to another person (the husband of his girlfriend), which leads to the man’s death. This action generates negative karma for Bill and punishment – the loss of his young life. He is forced forever to leave his beloved girlfriend and sister.
