It’s 1979 in Santa Barbara, CA, when the entire American people are suffering from a crisis of confidence (whether they know it or not) and the world is on the brink of entering into an entirely new decade, unaware of the many problems it will offer, while still left haunted by those of the 1970s. At the same time, a mother and her 15 year old son watch on in confused horror from a grocery store window as their family car burns, the same one they’ve had for years, and the last constant remnant of her ex-husband and his father in their lives.

While sitting on the edge of a fire truck in the grocery store’s parking lot and wondering what the hell to do next, she laments about how much they loved that Ford Galaxy, expecting a similar reaction from her son, who instead remembers the car for how much it broke down and overheated on them. “It was old,” he says. “It wasn’t always old,” she replies, “it just got that way all of a sudden.”
