Some kind of seminar or assembly demonstrating a plan involving superheroes with superpowers. Some mad genius-type of guy, bald and creepy, shows a crowd of young people using some kind of immersive, super-virtual-reality technique, a plan to beat some bad guy with a team of superheroes. We are all skeptical. Also, it feels like nobody is there out of there own choosing--- it feels like a school requirement, although there's no explicit mention of school. As we leave, I argue with Scott Gould, my elementary school friend, over the plausibility of the genius guy's plan. In the parking lot, a hick family in a beat-up truck almost hit another hick in his beat-up car because they are in a huge hurry.
