SYNOPSIS: One by one, Sally's friends start to stutter, and then keel over, seemingly dead. Sally is left alone, frantically dialing a cell phone that has suddenly stop working. What is happening? The answer is almost beyond Sally's comprehension. Two strange-looking creatures, Zog and Zod, enter and inform Sally that her whole life has been an experiment. The Earth has been destroyed, and an alien planet collected Sally and a few other humans as study samples. Unfortunately, the committee governing Zog and Zod's experiments has decided to de-fund Sally's simulation. Her life, as Sally knew it, is over. Zod allows Sally a few minutes to say good-bye to her reality, then returns to finish closing down the experiment by killing Sally. Just as Zod is about to do the deed, though, Zog returns to announce that, in fact, Sally's experiment has been re-funded—she has her life back! But how can Sally continue on again, resuming her “normal” life, knowing that it's all just an illusion?
