A man is startled from a boozy drive when a body crashes against his windshield. He manages to wrestle it awkwardly into his trunk despite the curiosity of a passerby. A gang of young hoodlums amuse themselves by playing pranks until their nighttime cruising grinds to a violent halt. Gunshots from a holdup break the silence of the night. The police and the ambulance attendants have a busy shift. It is 11:14 p.m. in Middleton--"The Happiest Place to Live," as the sign on the way into town informs us.
