10-year-old Benjamin and his two friends Karl and Julius are doing like Jackass on MTV ¿ filming each other while performing daredevil stunts. When Benji backs out on a particularly wild stunt involving a shopping cart and a steep slope, Karl and Julius won't play with him anymore. Under the threat of being left out, Benji reluctantly goes through with it. After a mad ride downhill, the shopping cart finally stops, and Benji lands on the ground. But he can't move. Karl and Julius run for help, but when they return, there is no trace of Benji.
