Alex Wilder is playing a computer game before being interrupted by his parents, Geoffrey and Catherine Wilder. They ask him to be ready when their party guests arrive to their home in Malibu, California. Every year, the Wilder's hold an annual gather of the same five families. The following pages introduce those five families; Gerturde, the whiny yet intelligent daughter of Dale and Stacey Yorke; Karolina, the light-hearted vegan daughter of actors Frank Dean and Leslie Dean; Chase, the rebellious jock son of Victor and Janet Chase; Molly, timid daughter of Gene and Alice Hayes; Nicole, the goth-like daughter of Robert & Tina Minoru.
After all of the family's arrive at the Wilder's home and the family's mingle in the hallway, the parents head to the library while they send the children into the game room. Boredom ensues for the kids and so Alex suggests that they spy on their parents by way of a secret passage he found when looking for Christmas presents. Upon finding a two-way mirror into the library, the kids discover their parents dressed up and believe them to be superheroes; The Pride, as Alex's father calls them. However, as they watch, Catherine Wilder escorts in a young woman and the children begin to question their parents actions. The Pride proceeds to prepare a device as Geoffrey Wilder thrusts a blade into the woman's stomach, stating that she is helping to forge a better tomorrow for their children. Before the meeting can continue, The Pride detects a noise from behind the mirror where the children are located.
