She is the main protagonist of the 1974 film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. She is described as young, beautiful, and strong willed. She is travelling across Texas with her friends, brother and boyfriend when she encounters the demented and cannibalistic Sawyer family. Her brother Franklin is killed by Leatherface right in front of her.
But, even though he did his best, one of the kids got away. He tried to stop her, chasing after her as fast as he could, but she had help: another outsider, driving a truck. The evil trucker killed his brother, ran him over like he was a possum. In a fury, Leatherface leapt at him, the saw ready to avenge his family, but the trucker was too quick. He knocked Leatherface aside and turned his own saw against him.
As he watched the outsiders driving away, the rage, grief and pain combined with the worry about what would happen to his family now. They would surely return with the police, and the police would take his brothers, his Grandpa. Without them, what would he do? Without their commands, he would wither and die.
After a series of grave robberies, Sally, her paraplegic brother Franklin, and their friends set out to investigate upon hearing reports that her grandfather's grave may have been vandalized. After visiting her family's old farmhouse, they encounter a family of crazed, murderous cannibals living nearby. Soon, her brother and friends are killed off and Sally comes face to face with the chainsaw wielding Leatherface, who wears a mask of human skin, and must figure out a way to escape.
After escaping, she is assisted by a passing truck driver and together they flee Leatherface.
