When an 8-year old girl fails to dunk an insulting clown at a county fair, her father steps up to avenge her loss. The clown needles the father, and his remarks become more cutting as the game goes on, including belittling the father for having given up on the dreams of his youth. The confrontation escalates until finally the ball strikes the target and the clown dunks. The crowd cheers wildly, the father and daughter embrace in celebration, and submerged underwater, the clown smiles, enjoying his victory as well.
