Ray Royce walks along 5th avenue after a busy day at the law office, suddenly being approached by a hooded figure wearing a ski mask. Speaking a language Ray could not understand, the figure suddenly pulls a gun and shoots Ray in the head, killing him instantly.
Waking up in a poorly constructed box, Ray tries to remember where he is and why. He pulls open the box and dirt begins to poor in. Was he buried? Quickly running out of air, Ray frantically digs with his hands and kicking with his legs. Finally, he breaks through the ground, seeing the moon and stars, but not understanding why his right eye cannot see. He looks around, trying to get his bearings. He focuses in on a headstone lounging nearby. His headstone.
