Plot summary

The film is focused around a demented scare game that the desensitized players: Greg (James), Anthony (Kawczynski), and Tommy (Whitton) think is harmless and the random victims believe is real; but when an accident blurs the two, the players are forced to face a consequence that trumps all the rest.
