A teenage boy is online in his bedroom. He's using instant messenger to communicate with someone. He thinks the person he's talking to is a girl called Cassy, but a shot of a grown man using instant messenger in a shadowy room suggests otherwise. The man tells the boy he wants to meet him in the park, and thinking it's Cassy, the boy agrees. The boy persuades two of his friends to come with him. He says he wants them to meet his new friend. They're a bit sceptical but finally agree to go to the park with him. They wait on a park bench.
