Ray is driving home with his wife Joanne and his daughter Peri after a Thanksgiving visit to Joanne's parents. Ray and Joanne argue about the state of their relationship. In the car, Peri's music device stops working due to dead batteries and Ray tells her that he will buy some for her at the next gas station. Soon, Peri says she needs to use a restroom and so they take a break at a gas station. The cashier tells Ray that they only take cash so Ray skips the batteries, but, in addition to a coke for Joanne and a coffee for himself, nevertheless buys two small bottles of liquor. After returning to the car, he lies to Joanne saying the store didn't have batteries. Peri cannot find her compact mirror so Joanne goes to check the restroom and Ray searches the back seat. While Ray is distracted, Peri starts to wander towards a deserted construction site because of a balloon stuck on a rebar. She is menaced by a stray dog and starts backing towards an exposed pit. Ray throws a rock to scare the dog but it causes Peri to fall into the hole. Ray, aiming to grab her, falls in as well and hits his head. He comes around in a daze and to a distressed Joanne who has climbed down and is checking Peri for injuries. After his head clears, he picks Peri up and decides to have her injured arm seen to at a hospital they passed a few miles back.
