- George McFarlane has been away on business. He didn't want to go home because his last discussion with his wife was so pleasant, he couldn't wait to get home. He goes straight from the airport to her favorite Thai Restaurant and brings her lunch as a surprise.
- He takes lunch to his wife's office and he's told that she hasn't worked there in weeks. He tried to reach her by telephone, but can't get a hold of her. He gets home to find everything is gone.
- However, her driver's license and personal identification are all on the mantle with a note:
"I don't have time to explain, but I'm not your wife. You are not who you think you are. You need to leave this house and remember. I'll find you when this is over... I hope."
"I won't be needing these anymore. I don't have time to explain, but I'm not your wife. You are not who you think you are. You need to leave this house and remember. I'll find you when this is over... I hope."
