Georgia in the 2010s, married competitive gamer couple Max and Annie are trying to have a child but their attempts are unsuccessful due to Max's anxiety surrounding his feelings of inadequacy when compared to his wealthy and suave brother Brooks. During Max and Annie's routine weekend game night with their friends Ryan, and married couple Kevin and Michelle, Brooks shows up in a Corvette Stingray (Max's dream car) and shares an embarrassing story about Max to throw him off during a game. Brooks offers to host the next game night at his home. Meanwhile, Max and Annie are trying to keep their game night secret from their neighbor Gary, a police officer left depressed after his divorce from their old friend Debbie. When the guests, including Ryan's new date, Sarah, arrive at Brooks' house the following week, Brooks says he has initiated an interactive role-playing mystery game, promising the winner his Stingray. An actor enters and begins monologuing, but is interrupted when two masked men break in and kidnap Brooks.
