Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper) controls Dorothy Vallens (Isabella Rossellini) because he is holding her little boy captive. The ear that Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) finds is Dorothy's husband's--he's found dead. Dorothy, naked, appears at Jeffrey's house begging for help as he drives up with Sandy (Laura Dern). That's how Sandy finds out that Jeffrey and Dorothy have had an affair. Jeffrey confronts Frank. Frank gets killed; Dorothy gets her little boy back; Jeffrey and Sandy become a nice small town couple. But, at the end, Dorothy and Jeffrey (seperately) think about the lure of Blue Velvet.
