Plot  On Mayfield Place, a quiet cul-de-sac in the fictional suburban town of Hinkley Hills, Ray Peterson (Tom Hanks) is trying to learn more about his mysterious new next-door neighbors, the Klopeks.

One evening, Ray and Art Weingartner (Rick Ducommun), the Petersons' other next-door neighbor, spy on the Klopeks with veteran Lt. Mark Rumsfield (Bruce Dern). The three watch Hans Klopek (Courtney Gains) drive his dilapidated car from the garage to the curb, then carry a large, heavy garbage bag from the trunk, place it in his garbage can and bang it repeatedly with a garden hoe. During the night, Ray watches the Klopeks digging in their back yard with pick-axes in the middle of a rainstorm. The following morning, Art runs out to check the contents of the garbage truck as it is collecting the Klopeks' can from the previous night. He is quickly joined by Rumsfield and Ray, but their search in the hope of finding human remains is futile.
