In 1969, Brantford, New Hampshire, Alan Parrish lives with his parents, Sam and Carol-Anne, in a large mansion. Alan then inadvertently rolls the dice after being startled by the chiming clock; a message tells him to wait in a jungle until someone rolls a five or eight, and he is sucked into the game.
