The kids have stumbled across an amalgamation of anomalies within an old, broken building, They have learned to exploit the glitch in the Matrix for their own enjoyment, through several areas which seem to defy real world physics: glass bottles reassemble after being shattered, rain falls from a sunny sky, broken lightbulbs that flicker briefly (during which they seem perfectly intact), a door which opens to nothingness, shadows that do not align with the physical origin, and a feather that moves peculiarly through the air. There is a large open space in the middle where they take turns jumping off a high point, freefalling towards the ground yet somehow stopping just inches before impact; this proves amusing and they seem unbothered by the inherent strangeness. An incandescent lamp bulb and its glowing filament. ... The front door of a house is often decorated to appear inviting. ... Two feathers Feathers are one of the epidermal growths that form the distinctive outer covering, or plumage, on birds. ...

Throughout the film, short sequences show that the agents are aware of the problem in the matrix, and a truck is seen driving on the way to "fix" it. They arrive while the kids are playing, and a team of "rodent exterminators" led by an agent round up the kids and throw them out. The story ends when the girl and the kids are outside of the house the next day, which has turned into a parking lot. The girl spots the floating can, one of the previous glitches, which is no longer floating. She picks it up and cuts her finger on the opened lid of the can, blood dripping. The kids then find the parking lot boring and find something else to do.
