In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a barbecue. As the action unfolds, we learn that Sharon and Kenny met at rehab, neither is employed, and they don't have a stick of furniture. The quintessential backyard party turns quickly into something more dangerous- and filled with potential.

3 Men, 2 Women
