Plot Synopsis Edit
The end of the world all started at Joey's Pizza Parlor, where 17 year old Alex Morales is working for a customer. The customer briefly recognizes him, and mistakes Alex for his brother in the Armed Forces, Carlos. Alex tells the stranger that he is indeed, not, Carlos. The stranger, introduced as Mr. Dunlap, tells him that he needs some work on his plumbing, in which we find out that Alex's father, Mr. (Luis) Morales, is away at a funeral in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
