10:30 on a Thursday night, Jerry is lying on the bed watching TV. His wife Marge is sitting at the computer in the living room. Both feel safe in the home they have shared for 28 years without incident. Jerry hears a sudden crash and is concerned that his wife has fallen or dropped something. As he opens the door to investigate he is met by a large man wearing a ski mask and holding an automatic pistol. That is the last thing Jerry remembers until he awakens in a hospital bed two days later. Meanwhile, in the living room, Marge has been confronted by two other masked men who rough her up and molest her. The attack ends when the men force marguret to produce the keys to both of the couples vehicles, their credit cards and the cash they have at the house. The phone lines have been cut and marge flees to a neighbors house to call police and paramedics.
