They immediately move to the nearest hospital, where they are taken care of quickly, little Peri sends her to the x-ray room to make a plaque, while Roy is sutured with the wound in his head; at that moment and due to exhaustion, the blow and the strong emotions lived, Roy falls fainted in the hospital waiting room.
Hours later he wakes up and immediately begins to look for his wife Joanne and daughter Peri, he goes to the nurses' room which asks him to lie down so that he can recover, without giving him any response to the location of his wife and daughter, start searching on your own and ask in the entrance department; there they indicate that he arrived alone, without any of the people he mentions.
Roy shocked by the answer they give him begins to despair and continues to search and interrogate doctors and nurses, always getting the same answer, he arrived alone and nobody knows the whereabouts of Joanne or Peri.
Roy seeks help with two police officers to check the hospital and help him get his family, the officers talk to the doctors and they tell him the same thing, the patient arrived only at the hospital, but that motivated the strong bruise that received in the head, his brain was affected and is creating hallucinations.
Police officers try to calm him down, but for him what he hears is totally absurd, they are hiding his family; officers ask doctors to apply a painkiller so he can go back to sleep and recover his sanity, but Roy quickly manages to escape the view of police, nurses, and doctors; now he goes through all the hospital facilities in search of Joanne and Peri.
So, this excellent movie will make us doubt Roy's sanity and for a little over a hundred minutes ask us if what we saw really happened or were simply delusions or dreams of the protagonist.
